Beyond the Bars:  Reducing the Impact of Incarceration

on Children and Families

 

OVERVIEW: 

 

This conference will present programs and proposals intended to help children and families cope more effectively with the challenges posed by incarceration of a family member. There is widespread agreement that incarceration of a family member poses serious challenges to children’s personal growth and socialization. The stability of families and communities are likewise challenged, often aggravating vulnerabilities accumulated over generations.

Plenary speakers and panelists will describe the programs, skills and knowledge that they use to help children and families cope with these problems. They represent community advocates, corrections and judiciary staff, government officials, and behavioral health professionals who have developed programs specifically dedicated to supporting incarcerated individuals, and their children and families. They also include diverse individuals with lived experience, including children and prior inmates who will describe the difficulties they experienced and resources they needed or found most valuable. The program will provide extensive opportunity for audience interaction. Resource tables will be available for programs and providers to present information and to meet with attendees. 

 
TARGET AUDIENCE:

The conference is intended for all stakeholders of the behavioral health and correctional systems. Behavioral health stakeholders include, but are not limited to: administrators, advocates, case coordinators, case managers, community members and community organizations, behavioral health and substance use consumers or service users, nurses, peer professionals and other peer workers, psychiatrists and other physicians, psychologists and all other providers.

Correctional system stakeholders include, but are not limited to: people with lived experience as inmates of jails and prisons; individuals, family members, and residents of all affected communities; advocates, police, corrections and probation staff, and judges or other law professionals; policy makers and public health professionals, government leaders, and other professionals and providers concerned with problems and improvements of the correctional system.

 

OBJECTIVES: 

At the completion of the program, participants should be able to: 

1. Describe programs focusing on family and child support, parenting skills and empowerment of children

2.  Describe the views, experience and recommendations of people with lived experience as inmates or family members

3.  Network, partner and advocate with community and system-based stakeholders

4.  Identify written and online resources to assist in education and in making referrals for at risk individuals and families.


PLENARY SPEAKERS:

  • Hon. Kim Berkeley Clark, Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas, Family Division
  • Anna E. Hollis, Executive Director, Amachi Pittsburgh
  • Kevin Jordan, CEO, Adaptive Behavioral Services
  • Amy Kroll, Administrator, Re-Entry Services, Allegheny County Jail

PANEL OVERVIEWS:

There will be four panels during the conference: 

COMMUNITY ADVOCACY: This panel focuses on solutions developed by citizens and community organizations of Allegheny and Beaver Counties. The panel highlights Amachi Pittsburgh’s focus on teaching children with lived experience to serve as mentors for other children and families at risk. Panelists will describe community-based efforts to offer parenting skills, child and family support, and school-based efforts to identify at-risk children.

CORRECTIONAL SYSTEM: Panelists will overview the challenges of incarceration and efforts to facilitate family wellbeing during periods of incarceration. They will present system-based efforts to evolve principles and practices that prepare inmates for re-entry and enhance capacity for reintegration through programs that offer parenting skills, opportunity for family visitation and individual counseling. 

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH: This panel will address the diverse and profound vulnerabilities that complicate the adjustments required of inmates and their families. Panelists will describe their approaches to the historical and ongoing challenges related to incarceration, including employment, education, trauma, racism, and other vulnerabilities contributing to social exclusion. 

GOVERNMENT: The focus of this panel will be efforts to establish policies and judiciary practices that support children and families separated by incarceration. Panelists will describe local, statewide, and national efforts to develop policies and judiciary practices that reduce the likelihood of foster placement, loss of parental rights, and systemic fueling of a ‘pipeline’ to crime and imprisonment for children.
