9780130940674: The Incarcerated Woman: Rehabilative Programming in Women's Prisons

Written by some of the foremost scholars in the area of feminist criminology, this book provides the most comprehensive, cutting-edge overview available of treatment/rehabilitative policies and programming for women prisoners. Focused on the special needs of women prisoners, rather than on prison programming in general, it explores those needs in detail, the ability of current programming to meet those needs, and what could be done. Each chapter addresses the theory, practice, policies, and issues of a different aspect of rehabilitative programming needs of women in prison--e.g., education, health needs, mental health issues, abuse issues, substance abuse issues, parenting issues, and discharge planning for women prisoners. For those working in the Criminal Justice System and women's programs.

From the Back Cover:

The Incarcerated Woman: Rehabilitative Programming in Women's Prisons provides a comprehensive overview of an important topic. With incarceration of women in the United States at an all-time high, it is imperative to assess what does and does not work in rehabilitative programming. This volume addresses that issue in depth. By examining existing programs in the context of the special needs of women prisoners, this book illustrates that parity in programming is not simply having the same programs that exist in men's prisons.

The twelve chapters, written specifically for this volume, examine the needs of women prisoners and the programs available to meet those needs. In the opening chapter, Chesney-Lind sets the tone for the volume by pointing out the dark side of parity: vengeful equity. The final chapter examines the current state of programming in women's prisons, with suggestions for the future. Topics covered include:

  • Education
  • Vocational Training
  • General Health
  • Pregnancy
  • HIV infection and AIDS
  • Special needs of women prisoners
  • Mental health issues
  • Substance abuse problems
  • Parenting issues
  • Re-entry into society
