"Invisible sentence" training
This training was developed by Pillars to offer best practice training to corrections, schools, health professionals, criminal lawyers and organisations working in areas that connect with the children of prisoners.
Jennifer Leahy continues to facilitate the training with her background knowledge of the prison system, and with her years of connection to Pillars.
We offer onsite training for any organisation working with children of prisoners and their families anywhere in New Zealand. We can tailor the workshops around your agency needs.
Training can be arranged at whatever venue works best for you and your team, or at our training centre in Christchurch, New Zealand.
