Counselling With-in Prison

C Lane made this Official Information request to Department of Corrections

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Department of Corrections should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: C Lane

Dear Department of Corrections,

If an inmate was receiving private counselling via an external provider approved by the prison for individual therapy via Video Link sessions. Would that same provider be able to include the inmates spouse for group session which has been proven necessary for rehabilitation and reintegration?

If so, how would one go about that arrangement?

Does the inmate have any entitlements around such thing?

Yours faithfully,
C Lane
