Operational Practice in the Management of Women's Prisons

The needs of women in a correctional setting pose unique challenges for operational practices that may have been designed without their gender differences in mind. This course addresses issues like these and more.

Participants will gain an understanding about how to apply evidence-based, gender-responsive tools and practices helpful to providing better services, implementing effective management and achieving successful outcomes for women offenders.

Module topics include medical and mental health, legal issues, communication differences, women’s pathways to prison, gender responsive principles, and staff sexual misconduct.
