With limited research available, issues surrounding incarcerated girls have been largely ignored. A new series of talks will focus on challenges this population faces - and what can be done to help. One of the benefits of the series is that it highlights the lack of data specifically about incarcerated girls.
Currently, much of the research pertaining to incarcerated youth has been developed using a male population, resulting in female youth receiving interventions extrapolated from male-centered practices.
Issues related to girls in the criminal justice system have been ignored and neglected. What we do with incarcerated girls in terms of their treatment is largely based on what we know about what works for boys. Treatment should be different because boys are different from girls.
So it is sort of like treating sexually transmitted diseases among girls using information about how STDs show up in boys. Ochoa is facilitating the series along with Niki WellerChair for the Department of Sociology and Associate Professor of Sociology at IU Kokomo, with topics ranging from mental health of incarcerated girls to the portrayal of girls in prison in the media.
The series will conclude in November with a female youth who spent time incarcerated. Her viewpoint will add authenticity to the experiences of youth involved in delinquency who experienced incarceration.
Speakers in the series come from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Norway and the United States, and include researchers, theoreticians and practitioners from different universities and academic disciplines including, but not limited to, education, sociology, psychology, counseling, restorative practices and criminology. Ample time has been built into the series for questions from participants, who can register for all sessions.
