Title: A Friend to Circles
Authors: Hani MJ
Publication date: 2011
Abstract: This film is the result of a methodology developed from using the Animation process to solve particular problems. In this instance, using the process as an active intervention to stop high-risk child sex offenders from reoffending. The process is a complex procedure that has been developed into an adaptable model (Hani, The Good Heart Model, 2011), which can be utilised in other problematic settings. GHM is a theoretical and practical methodology that references use of; Person-centred Therapy (C.Rogers); Ignatius Spirituality, The Good Lives model, a correctional and clinical rehabilitation model for sex offenders (T, Ward). Without using cameras, it develops the principles of auto ethnography, selective reflective practice and the facilitating therapeutic environment, person, production process and technique.
