It is worth remembering that the announcement of HMP Holloway was made by George Osborne on 26th November 2015. The inmates were gradually “decanted” (the prison service’s term) from that date.
It is easy to lose track of time and contact with experiences. This is why my colleague, Jessica Collier, and I have edited a book about the 20 years of therapy in Holloway entitled “The Last Sentence” which is due for publication next Spring by Routledge. We and the contributors are determined to honour and document the brilliant work achieved over many years by many therapists on behalf of hundreds of incarcerated women.
