Making Good is based on interviews with approximately sixty men and women with histories of petty crime. Only occasionally did my telling clients how to solve their problems do any good. Half had quit crime, half were still at it. The interview transcripts ring true. In my best groups the group members came up with their own answers to questions raised by their peers. My job was to make it safe for them to discuss problems and come up with their own answers. I believe that my ideas for solutions were consistently better than theirs, but the ideas the group came up with were their own.
If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people some- where insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them.
