Gender Matters: Effective Operations and Management of Women's Prisons

Mar. 06, 2017 - Mar. 10, 2017--The needs of women in a correctional setting pose unique challenges to implementing operational practices that may have been designed without their gender differences in mind. While some operations may apply broadly to the handling of all types of inmates, other operations need to be tailored to the unique medical, social, and legal needs of women inmates. Communication techniques for working with women also change. NIC’s Operational Practices in the Management of Women’s Prisons course addresses issues like these and more. Participants will complete a curriculum focused on contemporary research, which supports a management/operational style that recognizes gender differences. Module topics may include legal issues, communication, women’s pathways to prison, gender-responsive principles, and staff sexual misconduct. The course also covers how management styles for handling women in some areas may be different.
