Mindfulness Training at Allegheny County Jail
Graduate student Molly Bowdring developed a stress and coping skills program for incarcerated women at the Allegheny county jail with support from the Schweitzer Foundation. The program continues and is now co-led by Petra Rupert with the goal to enhance the physical, emotional, and cognitive rehabilitative experiences of incarcerated women by creating an opportunity for learning and engaging in the practices of yoga and meditation.
