Promising and Innovative Practices for Children of Incarcerated Parents: Arrest through Pre-Adjudication
NIC News & Updates


 COIPOn June 3rd, the Urban Institute in partnership with the National Institute of Corrections hosted a live webinar Promising and Innovative Practices for Children of Incarcerated Parents: Arrest through Pre-Adjudication.

We are happy to share with you the webinar recordings available on the event webpage along with the event agenda, speaker biographies, and speaker presentations. You may direct any questions to and please forward the event information to others who may be interested.

Urban has also released four products aimed at guiding criminal justice organizations and stakeholders in developing and implementing promising practices for children of justice-involved parents. The products include three toolkits on parental arrest policies, family-focused jail programs, and family impact statements, as well as a framework document that synthesizes what we have learned about promising practices and provides information about the context surrounding children and their families. The products provide key challenges and recommendations for the field and help organizations and stakeholders (1) understand the importance, scope, and effect of the issues facing children of justice-involved parents; (2) learn how to talk about these issues with their constituencies; and (3) appreciate how changes in practice can make meaningful differences by strengthening the relationship between children and their parents and reducing the trauma children experience when their parents are arrested, detained, and sentenced.
