Jacinta Hunt and Erica King discuss how Motivational Interviewing strategies can help support people who are and have been incarcerated.
“I can’t imagine doing my work without directly impacted people, Jacinta being one,” says Erica King, senior manager at CEPP. “Jacinta’s perspective and everyone who is directly impacted deeply informs the work that I do. Everything that’s personal is political. Jacinta has helped me to understand what the impact is on children of the incarcerated. Jacinta and women like her have helped me to understand what dignity is, what intersectionality is, how women organize, how women heal in prisons, how women build relationships and social networks, and how I work with them directly to develop change strategies in the criminal justice space – a direct result of Jacinta and women like her.”
