Description - Imprisoned Fathers and their Children by Peter Wedge

More than 125,000 children in the UK alone are "sentenced" to separation from their imprisioned parents, mainly fathers. The authors draw on extensive research and experience to examine the effect this kind of separation can have on the emotional development of a child and on family relationships. They make suggestions for work with prisoners and families in the light of current policy and practice and consider how to best support children coming to terms with conflicting emotions arising from father's imprisonment, fathers who may be teenagers themselves, mothers or carers coping with absent partners, prison staff trying to incorporate the family as a factor in rehabilitation.
