Barriers to Receiving Gender-Responsive Treatment in an Institutional Setting

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



Abstract:

The movement to provide women with gender-responsive treatment has begun to shift the way many community correction programs work with women. A disconnect still remains between the theoretical framework of providing treatment that is gender-responsive and the delivery of such services. Correctional programs for women have historically neglected to address their needs and continue to do so today. This paper will discuss the barriers to providing women with gender-responsive treatment in a New Jersey correctional system. In-depth qualitative interviews were conducted with 33 women residing at a halfway house. Questions captured women’s perceptions of treatment inside a state prison, a correctional assessment center and a halfway house. Barriers to accessing mental health treatment, trauma counseling, health services and various other gender-specific services were addressed and will be discussed. Policy recommendations will address how correctional agencies can improve the application of gender-responsive treatment.
