Incarcerated Fathers and Family Support: Do Veteran Inmates Differ from Non-Veteran Inmates?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Mental health problems are often responsible for the lack of family support among incarcerated individuals. In the case of veterans, family cohesion might have been already eroded by lengthy separations due to active duty training sessions and deployments. Drawing upon Conservation of Resources Theory, we assume that all inmates tend to value their ties with children and other family members. However, support from family members and children tend to vary across different groups (by gender, race, mental health status and type of criminal history).We hypothesize that incarcerated fathers who are veterans receive less emotional support (through visitations, mail, and telephone calls) and economic support from family members than incarcerated fathers who are not veterans. Consequently, we also hypothesize that fathers that are veterans have lower expectations about going back to their own families after incarceration than their non-veteran counterpart. We use multivariate statistical analyses of national samples from the 2004 Surveys of Federal and State Inmates of US Correctional Facilities (Bureau of Justice Statistics).
