When professionals work, interact, and exchange information with parents who are incarcerated and who have children involved in the child welfare system, they must also work with the correctional system and detention facilities (prisons). Navigating the protocols and procedures within a State’s correctional system can be challenging and confusing, especially to professionals unaware of the restrictions on visitations and correspondence with inmates.
This podcast features a conversation between representatives of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services familiar with the relationship between the child welfare and correctional systems. Listen to gain insight on how to facilitate communication, develop and execute case plans, and how to plan and prepare children for visiting their incarcerated parent. http://www.acf.hhs.gov/cb/resource/child-welfare-podcast-incarcerated-parents
