In the second of our two part look at imprisonment we focus on rehabilitation. Psychologist Dr Paul Wood, who completed two degrees while serving a sentence for murder, reflects on the impact a long prison term had on his life; Dublin Institute of Technology Professor Thomas Cooney tells us about the success of small business programmes in prisons; and Kim Workman, a former head of the New Zealand Prison Service, shares his experience of what works and what doesn't when it comes to rehabilitation.
