Incarcerated Parents[2] Incarcerated Parents[2] Presentation Transcript

  • Incarcerated Parents
    Carrie Devitt, Elysia Oliver, Jimmy Reed & Tatiana Rippy
  • Advantages to Connecting Children With Incarcerated Parents
    Visitation and other contact: • allows children to express their emotional reactions to the separation from their parent. • helps parents deal with separation and loss issues. • helps the child develop a more realistic understanding of their parents circumstances and allows parents to model appropriate interaction. • allows children to maintain existing relationships with their parents—contributing to a successful family reunification. • improves recidivism rates—parents who maintain contact with their children are shown to be less likely to recidivate than inmates who do not maintain contact with families. • helps children preserve important connections. • allows children to know that their parent is safe. • helps to develop and maintain the role of the parent.

  • Discussion Questions
    Another important aspect that is real, is the children that are following in the footsteps of many of their parents, friends and relatives. We often talk about or make the motivational statement “it takes a entire village to raise a child.” My question is, “what if all whom live in that village are convicted felons?”
