Description

When a person has learned to conceal vulnerability at all costs, how can s/he accept the help of a teacher? Jody Lewen, Executive Director of the Prison University Project, explains that fear of vulnerability is often the primary learning challenge for her students, but "getting help" can be taught, patiently, as a concept and a skill to overcome that challenge and transform lives.
