Spring 2019 Issue: Families and Incarceration

Incarceration, recognized as an “adverse childhood experience” can have a devastating impact on families emotionally, financially, and socially. Family Life Education can play a role both in reducing behaviors that lead to imprisonment and in helping families to cope with the repercussions of having a family member in prison.

Certified Family Life Educators are encouraged to submit their stories and experiences of working with families impacted by incarceration. Also of interest are articles that:

  • discuss the development and/or delivery of programs or curricula aimed at those in prison and/or their family members.
  • consider strategies to prevent and reduce incarceration.
  • focus on Family Life Education programs being facilitated in the community to address recidivism.
  • give research updates on the impact of incarceration on families and successful program and outreach outcomes.
  • discuss resources available to families and Family Life Educators.

Submission deadline is March 15, 2019. Email Dawn Cassidy with questions or to submit. Please review the author guidelines (PDF) before submitting.
