New book about how young children cope when a parent is incarcerated

When Are You Coming Home? How Young Children Cope When a Parent Goes to Jail helps answer questions about how young ones fare when a parent is incarcerated. Situated within a resilience model of development, the book presents research on children’s stress, family relationships, health, home environments, and visit experiences through the eyes of the children and families. It is written in an accessible manner and takes a humanizing, social justice-oriented approach to the topic, with presentation of case studies that bring children’s experiences to life. The chapters provide evidence regarding the paramount need to support children and their families before, during, and after a parent’s incarceration.
