The Effects on the Development of Children with Incarcerated Mothers


Essay from the year 2013 in the subject Social Pedagogy / Social Work, grade: A, City University of New York Hunter College, language: English, abstract: The size of inmate population, accompanied by the complex health and social issues related to the experience of incarceration, has prompted scholars and epidemiologists to consider the current state of incarceration in the United States as a public health crisis. Inmates' families, particularly the children, reside in the shadow of this crisis. According to a Bureau of Justice Statistics Report, 52% of state inmates and 63% of federal inmates are parents to 1.7 million minor children during the period of their incarceration. The statistics regarding parental incarceration are alarming and highlight the relevance of examining how having an incarcerated parent, especially a mother, affects children's short and long term developmental processes.
