Parenting young offenders: shaping and reshaping social networks following custody

This research project focuses on the impacts that child custody has on the broader family after the offender’s release from prison. Drawing on in-depth interviews with parents and qualitative social network analysis, the study will investigate ways that parental social networks are shaped and reshaped as a result of having a child imprisoned, and will explore the wider social and psychological impacts that prison resettlement has on family members related to the offender.
