The project deals with the issue of well-being in the penitentiary organizations and therefore the dynamics concerning relations between civil and prison professionals as well as between professionals and inmates. The approach that the partnership intends to adopt, in order to promote initiatives to support the improvement of intra-prison conditions, consists in the realization of working meetings. These allow the partners to start transferring information – such as exchanging and sharing experiences – acquired through previous experiences (projects, academic works and so on) based on the following topics: psychophysical health of professionals and inmates; training the professionals and inmates; communication between professionals and inmates; planning the space, the time in order to have the best use of them. The target of the project is aimed at: internal prison professionals, able to get through the exchange of best practices, the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills about the above topics; other human resources of training organizations already involved in issues concerning well-being in public administrations and, where possible, in prisons. In so doing, it is possible to share experiences and skills within the whole partnership.
