This chapter is for families. You can find a collection of ideas, tactics and helpful practices here - to care for your own wellbeing and in order to support your detained family member.
What happens with your life if someone close to you is arrested and put into prison? How can you take care for yourself and for others in such a situation? How have others coped with this kind of crisis?
These notes give you an impression of how others have dealt with the distress and trauma of imprisonement and state repression. All the authors have gone through similar and yet very different experiences. They offer their learnings and findings to those who face state repression now. Feel free to pick what seems helpful and to let go what does not speak to you.
