Episode #52 – Prison Consultant: Lee Steven Chappelle

Prisoners are not only expected to follow rules of behaviour, determined by the institutions they occupy, but In order to “survive,” they are also expected to obey an informal code of conduct–observed and created by inmates themselves.  Paul and Jordan talk to prison consultant, Lee Steven Chapelle, about this code and how, having long experience as a former inmate himself, he prepares clients to properly follow it, thereby avoiding violent or other negative repercussions behind bars.

Also, as an advocate of prison reform, Lee shares his views on how governments can develop institutional environments more amenable to the successful rehabilitation of inmates, while doing away with archaic practices, such as solitary confinement, that produce more harm than good.
