Funding: UTS Partnership Grant, and additional funding from Corrective Services NSW and Keep Them Safe funding (2013-2015)
This study aims to develop new knowledge about NSW incarcerated parents’ learning and support needs to enable a shift towards pro-social parenting practices.
The expected Breaking-the-Cycle (BTC) study outcomes include:
- generation of new knowledge about incarcerated parents and their parenting including current knowledge, skills requirements, support needs and appropriate delivery points for parenting interventions;
- an increased evidence base to inform CSNSW policies and inform the design and implementation of effective parenting support and education interventions for incarcerated parents;
- enhanced understanding of the effectiveness of two parenting programs for parents in custody (and those run under CSNSW supervision in the community).
