Who’s Doing Time? Incarceration and the Community

Incarceration rates in the United States are at an all-time high, with the U.S. leading the world’s incarceration rate. On any given day, there are about 2.2 million individuals behind bars. As counselors, we will more than likely work with children and family members of incarcerated individuals. Despite the growing rate of incarceration, we don’t talk about it enough in the counseling profession. Often, counselor education programs do not provide the necessary information regarding incarceration and its effects. In this webinar, we will examine the trauma of incarceration at individual and collective levels. We will also discuss the ripple effects of incarceration, such as family separation, economic decline, and shame.

  • Summarize the trauma of incarceration.
  • Identify two effects of incarceration on families and communities.
  • List two ways to support families and communities affected by the trauma of incarceration.

This webinar is held on Wednesday, April 14, 2021, from 1–2 pm EDT. This facilitated webinar is available to NSPN members through NSPN's partnership with NBCC. Documentation of one clock hour of continuing education is available for registrants who attend the full webinar. Please see the NSPN Support Center to access registration details for this webinar.
