Children of Incarcerated Parents

Katherine Gabel and Denise Johnston


The arrest and imprisonment of a parent is a significant trauma for children, and they often react by demonstrating a pattern of aggression, anxiety, hyperarousal, depression, attention disorders, developmental regression, and "survival guilt." Children of offenders can display behaviors similar to those of children with a parent who has committed suicide or is murdered, as well as behaviors stemming from other forms of parental loss. This one-of-a-kind book outlines for professionals working with these children the optimum time to provide intervention following significant trauma. It also shows that direct preventative and early intervention services to children of offenders can help them cope and can steer them away from a life in which crime plays an all too familiar role. The authors and their contributors offer guidance to aid social workers, psychologists, and others who work with children of incarcerated parents to help meet the children's needs and prevent future delinquency, adult offenses, and ultimately, cross-generational incarceration.
