abstract
The focus of our study is exploring the differences between men and women’s views regarding parenting while imprisoned; more specifically this study will explore anxiety issues for men and women. To measure anxiety we interviewed inmates of both sexes, using surveys that focused on, living situation prior to incarceration, placement of the children during parent’s incarceration, visitation and parenting programs. The researchers traveled to the women’s facility in Lusk and distributed 75 surveys to the incarcerated women and mailed 75 surveys to the men’s facility in Rawlins. The researchers want to show that incarcerated parenting affects the genders differently. The results of our study could be a great tool for implementing treatment programs on parenting for the incarcerated parents in the state of Wyoming. Many states, like Wyoming, have adopted the same therapeutic, counseling and class models for both fathers and mothers in the prison system. Seeing how the experience may affect one gender differently than the other we hope this study will influence prison systems to implement new programs to meet specific gender and parenting needs of those incarcerated.
