Center affiliate faculty member, Julie Poehlmann-Tynan, the Dorothy O’Brien Professor in Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and affiliate faculty member with the Center for Healthy Minds and the Institute for Research on Poverty, along with co-editor Dr. J. Mark Eddy, Senior Research Scientist with New York University, have published an update to their groundbreaking book, Handbook on Children with Incarcerated Parents: Research, Policy, and Practice. The updated guide for researchers and practitioners working with children with incarcerated parents comes after nearly a decade of expanding research.
“I’m eager to get this new edition out into the world, as the research on children with incarcerated parents has exploded in the past 10 years,” says Poehlmann-Tynan. “Whether a child is experiencing her first visit to a parent in jail or is detained on the US–Mexico border, separated from her parents and fearing their deportation, I anticipate this book will help us serve our children and families better—everyone from policymakers to frontline social workers.”
