SUMMARY

"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 societySharp, Susan F. is the author of 'Incarcerated Woman Rehabilative Programming in Women's Prisons', published 2002 under ISBN 9780130940674 and ISBN 0130940674.
