This Center for Victim Research webinar presents findings from the Urban Institute’s Evaluation of In-prison Programming: Addressing Prior Trauma and Victimization, funded by the National Institute of Justice. Researchers from Urban and the Center for Effective Public Policy present findings from its national Scan of Practice including the extent to which correctional institutions address victimization and trauma among incarcerated women and seek to advance trauma-informed practices. Specifically, presenters elaborate on the services and programming state Departments of Correction offer to address trauma and victimization, including community partnerships with organizations and agencies that work with women who have experienced victimization and trauma, and the challenges associated with providing such services. Presenters will conclude the webinar with recommendations.
