    Prof Julie Parsons talked to us about her research on the lived experience of the ‘pains of release’ and a neglect of narratives from former prisoners. Following the Voice Centred Relational Method, i-poems were created from interview transcripts, the resulting audio and visual montage are powerful reminders of what i-poems can reveal about alternative rehabilitative conceptualisations of wellbeing and meaning.
