For past twenty years, there has been an increase in the number of parents incarcerated as a result of drug addiction and drug
related criminal activity. The goal of this paper is 1) to discuss the incarceration rates of parents, including information on
parental demographics (i.e. race, gender/sex), and how the U.S. incarceration rates of parents compares with the international
incarceration rates of parents, 2) to discuss the effects of parental incarceration on young children and adolescents, 3) to present
the findings from our current multi-method research project examining the parenting challenges that mothers encounter upon
their release from the criminal justice system and 4) to offer suggestions for interventions and programming for this population
of parents and their children.
