Working with Children and Families Separated by Incarceration As a result of the growing prison population in this country, millions of children endure traumatic separation from their parents and erratic shifts from one caregiver to another. This handbook discusses the effects of parental incarceration, and the community services that should be available to support and preserve families. It also outlines child welfare practice needs and provides practical suggestions in areas such as child protection, temporary placement in out-of-home care, permanency planning, and family reunification.
