Abstract: Women represent a fast-growing segment of the criminal justice system, but counselors lack gender-responsive interventions and strategies to deal with substance abuse that often accompanies criminal behaviors. Storytelling has been used to reframe addictive and destructive behavior; however, less is known about using film and how the medium is presented to support women in prison. This qualitative narrative inquiry provides exploratory, narrative insights as to how using film, storytelling, and role play can be used as a behavioral strategy to support incarcerated women.
