Disentangling the Effects of Paternal and Maternal Incarceration on Children of Prisoners: A Focus on Mental Health Needs

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



Abstract:

In recent decades, a growing body of work has emerged on the adverse consequences associated with parental incarceration for children. Few studies, however, have attempted to disentangle paternal and maternal imprisonment from pre-existing stressors in their effects on children’s mental health outcomes. Accordingly, we rely on quantitative data on 1400 children of prisoners collected from in-depth interviews with a representative sample of prisoners to assess whether the gender of the incarcerated parent affects children’s mental health needs, net of pre-existing stressors. Drawing on attachment theory, we hypothesize that a mother’s imprisonment will produce greater emotional challenges for children compared to the imprisonment of a father. Policy implications and recommendations for future research are discussed.
