Abstract:
Purpose: To look at the challenges faced by women and their children once women return from prison and try to re-integrate into the family. The aim is to also look at family functioning during a period of imprisonment, and evaluate/suggest ways to improve interaction between the corrections and health and human services to better serve the growing population of children, families, and communities. Background: Different types of violence exist, such as physical, sexual, social and psychological abuse. Unfortunately, incarcerated mothers tend to suffer each of these levels of abuse. In several regions of the world, the health problems and the needs of male and female prisoners have many similarities. However, there are problems specific to women in prison making this topic very complex, involving diverse areas such as human rights, social welfare, child welfare, civil law reform and conditions within the prisons. Despite the number of affected children, there is little available research on the physical and psychological impacts of incarceration and the difficulty of re-entering society. The United Nations, along with a number of NGOs are working towards reconstruction of prison facilities, such as improving the accommodation where the women live, and including child care facilities as part of their construction programs. At the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture, the organization treats women who have been incarcerated in a holistic fashion because CCVT recognizes that the suffering that they have endured cannot be isolated in one or more parts of their being but it affects the whole person. This is why CCVT has a program for children, as well as with them, and is always aware of the fact that the victim of torture is part of a family.
