Prisoners as Parents: Building Parenting Skills on the Inside
Karen Tilbor, Edmund S. Muskie Institute of Public Affairs
University of Southern Maine, 1993. “This handbook [ provides] a guide to incarcerated parents, prison administrators and staff members, and child development and parent education professionals interested in developing and running parenting education and support programs for incarcerated parents. [It also discusses] the impact of incarceration on all family members, and the importance of considering that impact, and the needs of children in particular, in establishing prison policies, developing priorities for funding, and delivering services to prisoners and their families.”
