Well, let me state for the record: This was worth the wait, well…at least to an extent. This story is not fluffy and far from an easy read. This broke me. Just be prepared for a highly emotional read. I have no idea what he sees in me.
Strength, he says. A big heart. I see none of these things. Her family life is fucked up. Her dad is an alcoholic and a former boxer with lots and lots of regrets. He takes out his drunken aggression out on his kids, James and Sarah. James has always been her protector; her savior. He takes the brunt of punches and does everything in his power to protect her.
He makes her promise to never leave him. Their lives both revolve around each other.
She cannot and will not do anything intentionally to hurt her beloved brother. The guilt he lays upon her binds her to him. However it becomes clear that his feelings for her is starting to become more than sisterly, especially when his best friend, Sam, is showing interest in her.
Sarah has been interested in Sam for as long as she can remember. When they start to form a relationship, her feelings are mixed with elation and worry. She can be herself with him. He knows her every flaw, both inside and outside ones. Even after seeing all her scars, he still loves her. However, they did not see prison as a generally safe en- vironment. Rather, they viewed both the community and prison as dan- gerous, identifying different kinds of risks.
For example, some reported that prison cells were safer than apartments. Safety, as Bradley and Davino note, is relative—many of the women prisoners do not feel safe anywhere in the world, rather they perceive levels of danger in the environment.
Kaplan to the seriousness and amount of abuse experienced in childhood and Downloaded by [Rod Library, University of Northern Iowa] at Therefore, meeting psychosocial needs of women prisoners may enhance their perception of their personal sense of safety in the in- stitution and in the community. Several responses were unique to this survey. These included notes from a few administra- tors who estimated that almost half of the inmates did not need to be im- prisoned at all; the belief that fears of legal liability precludes having nurseries for the infants of inmate mothers, and the appreciation for so- cial work and psychology as appropriate majors for correctional coun- seling.
The wardens and their representatives in the present study echoed this theme in their view of inmates as antisocial, a term that is more often as- sociated with men than with women American Psychiatric Associa- tion, Similarly, in direct contradiction to governmental data on criminality, virtually all the administrators stated that the increase in criminal activity today is the reason for the upsurge in female incarcera- tion rates. On media representation of the sexual abuse of female offenders by male officers, respondents were divided.
While 10 respondents thought the media reports were blown out of proportion, another ten called re- cent media reports of the sexual abuse reflective of reality, and almost as many thought that the publicity was probably helpful in the long run. One of the precepts of gender-based counseling is that there is no clear-cut dichotomy between victim and offender Belknap, ; van Wormer, In a Canadian government report, Shaw made recom- mendations that have become the framework for treatment of female in- mates in Canada.
These recommendations spelled out the following five feminist principles on which all future developments were to be based: Empowerment, to help women overcome the impact of vio- lence, poverty, and racism. Respect and dignity, especially for those with racial and cultural differences, for example, a circular healing lodge was devel- oped for Native women.
Supportive environment, to include nutritional food, fresh air, space and privacy, 5. One major criticism of the appealing women-centered philosophy as a blueprint for corrections, however, is that it is so appealing.
Kaplan concedes, this positive model can be used by the government to Downloaded by [Rod Library, University of Northern Iowa] at Model gender-specific programs have been developed in the United States and Canada.
The Tree of Creation Canadian Aboriginal HIV strategy is an ethnic-centered, gender-specific program instituted through- out the prison system in Northwest Canada and is described by Lambert Using a nature-based planning model of a large tree with branches as a metaphor for past and present wounding, facilitators help inmates take responsibility for healthful living in the future.
Frankenstein, personal communication, September 12, Contracting with a therapeutic treatment agency, the Department provides funding for enhanced services to include two MSWs, one RN, and one child development specialist in addition to substance-abuse counselors and child care workers. Central to these programs is the theme of personal empowerment through self-expression.
Learning life skills, such as parenting, occurs through involvement in mutual aid or support groups focused on a com- mon, all-absorbing task. The best place for non-violent female offenders is in the community rather than locked away from society in a crowded prison cell Enos, Such women can be better served in community facilities such as halfway houses with a warm and nurturant atmosphere, and sufficient supervision to help protect them from their worst, most self-destructive behaviors.
Many of the problems that women inmates face post-trau- matic stress disorder and drug addiction are best treated in community settings Shaw, ; van Wormer and Davis, The report from the U.
Department of Health and Human Services Kassebaum, documents the results of several demonstration pro- grams funded by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment to address the complex needs of drug dependent female offenders. Exemplary programs described in this research document are: These programs changed the confrontational thera- peutic community into a nurturing, family-like environmental setting and adapted the traditional Twelve-Step Model to suit the needs of women who already felt powerless over most aspects of their lives.
Cer- emonies to celebrate graduation and follow-up achievements are af- firming events which serve to bring the community together in a bonding experience. It is inter- esting to note that the majority of participants were women, but it is not clear from the responses what level of authority these individuals actu- ally hold within the prison.
Differing job roles would very likely trans- late to differing perspectives of the institution, the prisoner population, and the gender differences within the staff population. The difficulties in the human subject review processes of the various state, federal, and institutional requirements may be indicative of why research in this area is, in general, limited. The complexities in proce- dures, paperwork, and coordination of the various authorities preclude easy entry into prison staff or inmate populations.
As this study shows, even small samples are difficult to access, but can provide insight into concerns of women prisoners. Self-hatred and low self-esteem are a part of the pattern.
As adults, they are extremely vul- nerable to being arrested in drug raids and being implicated if their male partners are arrested for dealing drugs. Kaplan feminists in the U. Gender-specific mental health and substance abuse treatment are critical for women in prison and those formerly incarcerated. Women in prison and those formerly incarcerated experience repeated exposure to trauma ranging from stigmatization and powerlessness to sexual, emo- tional, and physical abuse.
Langan and Pelissier argue the types of drugs and the reasons why women use drugs differ from men, and the psychosocial issues re- lated to drug usage and treatment differ. The cost savings of innovative, gender-specific programming including substance abuse treatment within the community are incalculable. What is good for the mothers, in short, is good for the children, and what is good for the mothers and children is good for the society as a whole.
