Prisoners undergo a unique set of psychological changes in order to adapt to incarceration. Policies, conditions of confinement, attitudes regarding rehabilitation and punishment--all shape the experience. Re-entry requires another set of adaptations. What is the role of psychotherapy during incarceration and post-incarceration? Where is the intersection of criminal behavior and mental illness? What interventions are most effective for the transition from prison to home? Discussion will explore the disparate, complex, and sometimes conflicting views of imprisonment, release, criminality and community.
