UNBOUND is an anti-crime, anti-moral wrongs program. It works on the assumption that the people entering into the program are already incarcerated and have displayed tendencies that are considered sociopathic and/or immoral. The intention of the program is to force the participants to take a hard unflinching look at the condition their thinking and lives are in and use this as a tool to inspire change.
The sessions are made of one or more facilitators and a small group of students. Each session will require involvement from each student by means of group discussions and one-on-one counseling. It will be the facilitator’s job to jolt each participant into seeing their own thinking errors through an unrelenting disassembly of sentences, phrases and words that are admissions of thinking errors that are going unnoticed by the very person saying the words. Records on each student must be kept by facilitators to ensure that every student comes under scrutiny.
The relationship between facilitator and student must undergo several stages. In the first stage, not by design, but by the very nature of the program, the facilitator will be seen by the student as an antagonist. This is expected in any situation where a person’s life principles are called into question by someone who them self is far from perfect. In the second stage the facilitator will be seen as a fellow misfit of society who has undergone their own awakening and is someone who knows the ropes and can speak with the voice of experience. The final stage requires the facilitator to take on the role of mentor. As with many groups, such as AA and others, it has to be accepted that people do not change overnight and may find themselves struggling with moral or legal dilemmas. In order for the participants to avoid what could turn out to be a life altering mistake this lifeline needs to be firmly in place.
Facilitators are selected from the most successful of the students and should undergo facilitator training if needed.
The UNBOUND program is designed to work with people who have volunteered for participation. The ultimate goal of the UNBOUND program is to save its participants from their own self-destructive thinking.
