Event description

Description

Around 4,000 women are imprisoned at any one time in England and Wales. Being a mother has a significant impact on how women adapt to the prison environment, and on their rehabilitation and resettlement needs with consequences for both physical and mental health. Over 17,000 children each year experience their mother being in prison, which puts a huge emotional and social strain on these families and children.

This event is aimed at academics, policy makers and practitioners who may, through their work, come into contact with imprisoned mothers and their children. The event will combine seminars and workshops, and will involve listening to the stories of women in prison.

Academics will discuss their own research on mothering and imprisonment, and how this can be applied to policy and practice. Practitioners will learn about how research can provide them with information, insight and potential solutions to the challenges presented by maternal imprisonment.

The aim of the event is to raise awareness, encourage professionals and practitioners to think about how research can inform their work, encourage the development of good practice and achieve more positive outcomes for imprisoned mothers and their families.
