Scarano, Emma (2020). Imprisoning Communities through Intergenerational Incarceration.
This study reviews previous literature on children of the incarcerated, and uses the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health to examine factors causing intergenerational incarceration. This investigation suggests that there is reason to believe the trauma associated with having a parent incarcerated during childhood has a substantial impact on subsequent quality of life.
