About the Course:

Though many correctional facilities recognize that women bring different health and relationship issues to their period of incarceration, operationally most have not adjusted practices already established for male inmates. Jails present a challenge to service provision due to their “short-term” nature where lengths of stay may range from overnight detention to a sentence up to one year. This series discusses topical issues relating to women in jails and highlights promising programs from around the nation.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, Justice Involved Women With Co-Occurring Disorders and Their Children created by Holly Hills
