The Incarcerated Woman: Rehabilitative Programming in Women's Prisons
Susan F. Sharp, Roslyn Muraskin
Prentice Hall, 2003 - Law - 189 pages
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.
