About this book

The second edition of this handbook examines family life, health, and educational issues that often arise for the millions of children in the United States whose parents are in prison or jail. It details how these youth are more likely to exhibit behavior problems such as aggression, substance abuse, learning difficulties, mental health concerns, and physical health issues. It also examines resilience and how children and families thrive even in the face of multiple challenges related to parental incarceration. Chapters integrate diverse; interdisciplinary; and rapidly expanding literature and synthesizes rigorous scholarship to address the needs of children from multiple perspectives, including child welfare; education; health care; mental health; law enforcement; corrections; and law. The handbook concludes with a chapter that explores new directions in research, policy, and practice to improve the life chances of children with incarcerated parents.

Topics featured in this handbook include:

  • Findings from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study.
  • How parental incarceration contributes to racial and ethnic disparities and inequality.
  • Parent-child visits when parents are incarcerated in prison or jail.
  • Approaches to empowering incarcerated parents of color and their families.
  • International advances for incarcerated parents and their children.

The second edition of the Handbook on Children with Incarcerated Parents is an essential reference for researchers, professors, clinicians/practitioners, and graduate students across developmental psychology, criminology, sociology, law, psychiatry, social work, public health, human development, and family studies.

 

This important new volume provides a cutting-edge update of research on the impact of incarceration on family life. The book will be an essential reference for researchers and practitioners working at the intersections of criminal justice, poverty, and child development.

The comprehensive, interdisciplinary focus of this handbook brilliantly showcases the latest research, interventions, programs, and policies relevant to the well-being of children with incarcerated parents. This edition is a ‘must-read’ for students, researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers alike who are dedicated to promoting the health and resilience of children affected by parental incarceration.

Dr. Eddy now is a Senior Scientist at New York University. He specializes in conducting rigorous longitudinal research studies of prevention and intervention programs intended to benefit children and families. In recent years, his work has centered on the conduct of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) within school systems, the juvenile justice system, and the adult corrections system as well as with nonprofits working as partners with these and other social service systems.

Julie Poehlmann-Tynan, Ph.D., earned her doctorate in child clinical psychology from Syracuse University in 1995. She worked as a licensed psychologist in the Department of Family Medicine at the State University of New York for several years before starting a postdoctoral fellowship in Developmental Psychopathology at the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Poehlmann-Tynan has been a professor in the Human Development and Family Studies department at UW-Madison since 1999. She currently holds the Dorothy A. O’Brien Professorship in Human Ecology at the School of Human Ecology and Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Her research focuses on the role of family relationships in the development of resilience in high-risk infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, especially as captured using observational methods. Dr. Poehlmann-Tynan has more than 60 peer-reviewed publications, mostly articles in high impact journals such as Child Development, Developmental Psychology, Pediatrics, American Psychologist, Development and Psychopathology, and Family Psychology as well as book chapters and 4 edited volumes, including a Monograph for the Society for Research in Child Development. She has served as PI on $3 million in grants, mostly from NIH, in addition to serving as a consultant on an additional $4 million in grants. Dr. Poehlmann-Tynan also served as an adviser to Sesame Street on their Emmy-nominated initiative for children with incarcerated parents. She has consulted with Wisconsin Public Television on an outreach effort for families struggling with methamphetamine addiction and worked with Madison Area Urban Ministry to evaluate their mentoring program for children of incarcerated parents. She is particularly interested in improving the self-regulation and empathy of high-risk children and their parents. Toward this end, Dr. Poehlmann-Tynan is currently conducting randomized controlled trials of interventions using contemplative practices for preschoolers and parents of young children.
