Substance Abuse Community: Helping Women Re-enter The Community After Incarceration
$5.00 | CE Hours:1.00 | Beginning
CE Course Description
Research indicates that, as of 2016, over 1.2 million women in the United States were incarcerated in prison or jail, on probation, or on parole. Research also indicates that when women are released from jail or prison, they are often ill-prepared to reencounter and address the serious problems they faced prior to incarceration. As a result, health care professionals are being asked to become familiar with practices that may support a woman’s transition from a correctional facility to the community. This course provides an overview of topics and practices for serving women who are reentering the community after a period of incarceration. Additionally, this course is intended to increase knowledge of specific issues that women often face during reentry and to provide relevant resources to health care professionals who can help them succeed.
