Bitterness, frustration, self-anger, and the realities of prison life leave many prisoners and their families feeling hopeless. For those who have served lengthy terms and others who are facing years of incarceration, the feelings of despair can be overwhelming and never-ending. Healing Our Imprisoned Minds shows prisoners and others how to find peace of mind and meaning in their daily lives. In 29 beautifully written but practical essays and exercises, author and prisoner Patrick Middleton, Ph.D., shows readers how to dissolve their bitterness, change their perspectives, work on their flaws gradually, practice empathy, live each day with a purpose, and much more.

Patrick Middleton earned his B.A., M.A. and PhD. behind bars, the first to do so in an American prison and all within a twelve year period. Now he has developed a unique system to enable anyone who makes the choice, to follow in his guidance and experience a method for breaking the chains of bondage, whether you are in a physical prison or a psychological prison.
Patrick Middleton’s system for HEALING OUR IMPRISONED MINDS does not give you the ten best ways to proceed, nor does he offer another set of twelve steps that may or may not appeal to you. This system outlines 29 ways of making honest and valuable changes in you life.
Whether behind bars or chained to societal illusions, we all have the same worst enemy- the beast within each of us. However metaphorical, it is no less real in our hearts and minds and it lurks within each of us. Learning how to transform that beast into a set of assets that help to overcome daily problems is indeed a valuable treasure.
Instead of complaining how brutal or abusive life is, why not learn a better way than adding more strife and grief to your life? HEALING OUR IMPRISONED MINDS is not just for prisoners. People who grow up abused by the world around them often become abusers as adults because that is what they have learned. Make a choice and break the cycle because you do not have to become another statistic in the revolving door syndrome.
I honor and praise Patrick’s book (and eagerly await his new autobiography) because I have been there and I know the difference between a hustler and a brilliant mind destined to pave a way forward towards excellence. I highly recommend this book to everyone who is fed up with the same old same old. Pat gets 4 stars, my highest rating.
