CE Course Description

There is much to learn from implementation assessments of family-focused reentry programs, and these programs may help mitigate the impact of incarceration on people experiencing incarceration and their families.  This CE course examines the activities, approaches, and challenges of programs designed to help stabilize fathers and their families, help move fathers toward economic self-sufficiency, and reduce recidivism.
