Prison Parenting Programs: Resources for Parenting Instructors in Prisons and Jails
Prison Parenting Programs: Resources for Parenting Instructors in Prisons and Jails is a directory intended to help correctional educators enhance existing or create new parenting programs in their correctional facilities. The resources in this handbook are grouped according to the predominant focus of the program: multi-faceted programs, parenting skills programs, family support and mentoring programs, parent/child book reading programs, re-entry programs, handbooks for incarcerated parents and their families, books on incarcerated parents and their families, videos on incarcerated parents and their families, and newsletters for parenting educators in correctional facilities.
This could be a useful resource to educators working in prisons and/or with ex-offenders. It provides a range of resource information. It classifies resources into nine broad headings, many of which overlap with one another.
This document provides a comprehensive compilation of parenting resources for use by correctional and community educators. This is a valuable document for practitioners in correctional education, as it is a good overview of what is being done in parenting and reentry programs in correctional systems.
The entire document is a collection of easily accessed resources that can be used as specific standalone tools for instruction, or that can be customized and individualized for a specific purpose or population.
