SPEAKER BIOS

Peter Banks -Seventh Step Picture

PETER BANKS

The Alberta Seventh Step Society

Peter’s presentation tells a story about his experience of adoption, abuse, drugs and alcohol, lost dreams, and the criminal lifestyle. The changes Peter endured from being a successful hockey prodigy to a federal inmate in both medium and maximum-security penitentiaries all contribute to his first-hand knowledge of substance abuse and its consequences. Peter discusses childhood abuse, consequences of living as a criminal, the affects on his family, and what he accomplished to secure a new direction for his life. A journey inspired by forgiveness he found for others and even more so the forgiveness he found for himself. Working to better himself during his time as an inmate, Peter discusses the supports and help he sought out during his incarceration as well as post-release. He speaks about the importance of community resources and supports which not only assisted him in maintaining his freedom but also in assisting other offenders to become pro-social members of society and have a successful and safe community reintegration.
