The main session topics were: prisoner rights in the context of human rights (including issues related to employment and remuneration of the convicts), preparation for prisoner release and reintegration, psychological aspects of prisoner adaptation, the mentorship of prisoners and the KPCES project (PF is considering taking part in the
implementation of a Centre for Rehabilitation and Aid to Prisoners in Bydgoszcz (KPCES). Kazimierz Pawlowski, a Polish artist who attended Convocation 2011, spoke about social and occupational rehabilitation from the perspective of former
prisoners, and Anna Stranz presented the PF Poland Bydgoszcz regional centre.
The broad range of impacts on detention centre inmates was discussed as well as the social adaptation upon release. Emphasis was placed on the ability of ex-inmate employers to break the stigmatization suffered by people with criminal records.
