99 Days and A Get Up, 3rd Edition
An OPEN Information Series (TM) Publication
New edition of the most widely used reentry handbook in America. A
powerful guide to successful social and emotional transition from
prison into the community. This candid but compassionate handbook
leads offenders and their loved ones through the turbulent period
before and after release, helping establish a sense of perspective and
control, thus reducing stress, fear, and "short pains." Revised and
expanded to cover the last six months pre-release and the first six
months post-release, 99 Days gives honest, direct advice for dealing
with the major barriers ex-offenders must overcome to achieve long-
term success.

99 Days and A Get Up -- Electronic Version
An OPEN Information Series (TM) eBook
The 99 Days and A Get Up Training Program is designed to teach the
client how to make the necessary changes to first survive in the
community, secondly adapt to it, and finally integrate into it.  Integration
into the community implies that the person will interact legally within
the community, adopt broad community values and behaviors and find
peace, dignity and commitment in doing so.

The 99 Days Training Program is soundly based on theory and
empirical knowledge, as well as 30 years of experiential insight.  The
program is designed to teach the practical and psycho-social skills
needed by people who are about to exit a prison culture and take on
the demands of community life.  The overall goal of arrest-free living
can only be achieved by providing a reference framework that will allow
the participant to successfully manage the myriad situations that he or
she will encounter upon reentry into modern society.  

The program is structured to guide the participant through a series of
learning exercises that begin with the development of decision making
skills and tools for emotional control.  Activities that develop an action
plan are presented in the order in which they will be needed, with the
first period addressed being the last portion of incarceration.  To
reduce anxiety, participants first complete activities about hypothetical
scenarios before addressing similar activities that are specific to
themselves.

The 99 Days and A Get Up Training Program is composed of an easy-
to-use trainer’s manual, a student handbook and student workbook.  
The trainer’s manual contains a series of reproducible student
exercises which follow and expand upon the progressive stages of the
handbook and workbook.  Following purchase of the program unit, the
only recurring cost is that of the student handbook and workbook.  The
cost per program is modest and made even more so by the discount
structure shown on the Order Information page.
