Making Connections – TCCC Del Valle Jail

In February 2008, Truth Be Told became part of the PRIDE (general population) & PEACE (maximum security) Women’s Programs at Travis County Correctional Complex.

Making Connections consists of a series of approximately 20 classes or sessions. The number of sessions in the series varies according to the size of the group and the amount of discussion.

Objective: Participants will be provided with tools that promote personal growth in the areas of self-awareness, emotional wellbeing, and positive self-management practices.

Process: Classes incorporate the principles of the “4 C’s” – community building, communication skills, caring for self and creativity. Specific activities include: videos, readings, discussions, respectful listening, small group and partner activities, and written exercises.
