Abstract:

Using a sample drawn from female jail inmates in four states, this project seeks to understand the experiences of women in jail and prisons, particularly with regard to coping with separation from children. The project examines the extent to which familial background characteristics (i.e., living situation while growing up, family history of incarceration, and parental abuse of drugs and alcohol) relate to the female inmate’s own circumstances including abuse prior to incarceration, history of drug and/or alcohol abuse and physical illness. Specific race differences regarding familial background characteristics (i.e., living situation while growing up, family history of incarceration, and parental abuse of drugs and alcohol) and/or the female inmate’s own patterns of abuse prior to incarceration, history of drug and/or alcohol abuse and physical illness are also examined. The project describes the patterns of treatment including drug/alcohol, mental health counseling, drug treatment, medical attention, group counseling, parenting classes, and reunification counseling, and the differences that exist regarding the presence of treatment and the offender’s race.
