October was another busy month, with Inside-out team members involved in two events!
The first was a Masters & Doctoral Research Workshop, hosted at Kgosi Mampuru II Female Correctional Centre, which was aimed at using and applying community psychology principles in order to identify possible research topics in the Department of Correctional Services.
The second, was guest lecture on South Africa’s prison Number gang at the University of Johannesburg by none other that Inside-out team member Mr. Mbongiseni Mdakane. The focus of the lecture started on the genesis of the Number gang; the formation of the various contemporary Number gangs; their modus operandi; processes governing their initiation rites as well as the rites of passage.
You can read both reports and see pics of the events on our Facebook page here.
