Adapting Custodial Practices to Reduce Trauma for Incarcerated Women: Executive Summary

Abstract

Without intentionally changing custodial practices to consider women’s histories of victimization and reduce further trauma, correctional facilities will continue to trigger, retraumatize, and harm the women in their custody. This executive summary contains information about how departments of corrections (DOCs) and women’s prisons adapt operational philosophies and custodial practices to reduce trauma and victimization. The summary outlines findings from the full report, which can be viewed here.
