Abstract: 

This research brief examines parenting programs for incarcerated fathers. Before discussing programming, researchers discuss the effects of the incarceration of fathers on communities, families and children. Next, they briefly review research that has examined the experiences of fathers before, during and after their incarceration. Finally, they examine programs for incarcerated fathers that have demonstrated positive impacts for fathers, families and children. (Author abstract)
