Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. gain awareness of the social, emotional, and academic challenges associated with parental incarceration.
  2. identify strategies to support students with incarcerated parents socially, emotionally, and academically.
  3. identify interventions for children experiencing parental incarceration that could be adapted for school settings.


What is known about children experiencing parental incarceration (PI)? We will provide the results from a systematic literature review that will explore this topic. Our synthesis of the literature will describe the clinical and academic features of children experiencing PI. In addition, practitioners will learn about intersectionality within this population and interventions to support children experiencing PI.
