Abstract: In attempts to contribute to the sociology of punishment, this project addressed how fathers practice parenthood while under mass correctional supervision. To do so, it analyzes the lived experiences of 45 incarcerated fathers (semi-structured interviews at two community correctional facilities in a Midwest state). Individuals under mass correctional supervision practice fragile fatherhood in intervals. Incarceration and fatherhood corner participants against conflicting expectations and drain participants’ limited resources. On the one hand, the participants’ ideal fatherhood involves being present and involved in their children’s lives, protecting children from neglect/abuse, guiding children in a moral centered world, creating and maintaining a parent-child relationship, and financially providing for their children’s needs. On the other hand, incarceration legally forces participants to be present and involved in a correctional facility, to lose privacy, power, legal or illegal financial resources, and autonomy, and to incur criminal justice debt. With limited time, energy, and financial resources, throughout various incarceration periods, struggling for access to their children, fathers practice fragile fatherhood. While incarcerated, fathers struggle between maintaining the commanding father image and having their children see their vulnerable inmate status, between providing for children’s needs and paying criminal justice debt.

"Debunking the One-Size-Fit Model in Corrections: Exploring the Significance of being African American in Counseling Offenders in Corrections" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology – 71st Annual Meeting, Washington Hilton, Washington, DC, Nov 17, 2015 <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <>

Abstract: This paper explores the significance of cultural competency in counseling African American offenders within the correctional system. First, it presents the fact that African American are disproportionately incarcerated, which is largely the result of many economic, educational, social, and health disparities. Second, historical events and experiences of African Americans lead to disconnect between offenders and correctional counselors. Third, the lack of culturally competency on the part of correctional counselors leads to inappropriate counseling, assessments, mental health treatment, and case planning of African Americans. Fourth, this paper provides some approaches to working with African Americans. Policy implications suggest that the correctional system should implement cultural competency in the correctional system.

"The Impact of Juvenile Inmates’ Perceptions and Facility Characteristics on Disorder in Juvenile Correctional Facilities: Analyzing Data from the Performance-based Standards for Juvenile Correction and Detention Facilities Project" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology (ASC), Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA, Oct 31, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <>
Publication Type: Poster
Abstract: For the first time, data from OJJDP’s Performance-based Standards
(PbS) for Youth Correction and Detention Facilities project is available
for analysis. We use it to predict victimization and fear among individual
juvenile inmates. We estimate hierarchical linear models using both
facility and individual level factors. Our results depart from prior research
efforts, which have focused primarily on either an importation or a
deprivation model for explaining facility disorder. In contrast, we find
evidence of a third model that merges individual and facility level
variables to consider individual youths’ perceptions of facility rules and
practices. We find that the best predictors of victimization are youths’
understanding of facility rules, and their perceptions of how good the
school is and how helpful the staff are.

4. Chiu, Ming. "Flowing Toward Correct Contributions: Wrong Ideas, Correct Evaluations, Justifications, and Politeness Improve Group Problem Solving" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2019-06-17 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Statistically modeling group processes of students creating correct, new ideas (correct contributions or CCs) can help educators improve students' problem-solving. 80 high-school students worked in groups of four on an algebra problem. Group mean mathematics grade and percentage of CCs predicted group solution score. 2,951 conversation turns were modeled with a new quantitative discourse analysis tool, dynamic multilevel analyses (DMA). DMA statistically identified critical events (breakpoints) that divided the conversations into distinct time periods, some with many CCs and others with few CCs. Wrong contributions and argumentation processes (correct evaluations of previous speaker's ideas, justifications, and polite disagreements) yielded more CCs. Meanwhile, questions, rude disagreements, and agreements yielded fewer CCs. Students often disagreed with wrong contributions, but used them to build CCs. Unlike CCs or correct ideas, correct evaluations yielded more CCs for 3 turns. Correct evaluations also yielded more correct evaluations, justifications, and agreements, and fewer wrong contributions. Justifications yielded more justifications and fewer rude disagreements. Justifications yielded more CCs and questions received satisfactory explanations more often in successful groups than in unsuccessful groups. Applied to practice, teachers can encourage students to express and justify their own ideas (even wrong ideas) while evaluating others' ideas carefully and politely.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: In the past two decades, legislative reforms throughout the United States have facilitated the transfer of juveniles to criminal court for prosecution and punishment as adults. Many of the affected youths end up in adult correctional institutions—in jails awaiting trial, and in jails or prison post-sentencing. The purpose of this research is to examine youths’ adaptations to adult confinement, and how they relate to the developmental needs of adolescents and the transition to adult life. We conducted interviews in the late 1990s with 75 juvenile offenders who were transferred and convicted in the criminal courts of Florida, and who spent time in jails and prisons. In this paper, we report on youths’ institutional adjustment—including academic and work activities while confined, relationships with correctional staff, relationships with other inmates, behavioral misconduct, and orientations toward “doing time.” The connection between youths’ institutional adjustment and behavior following release is also examined. Findings are interpreted in terms of institutional constraints on the expression of developmental needs, and the meanings attached thereto, in a population disproportionately comprised of youth from impoverished inner-city environments.
