Abstract:

How do they reintegrate into society after their release? Are there any programs to help prepare inmates for reintegration during incarceration, and which of these programs are effective? What are the differences between the group who manage to break the cycle of release and rearrest and those who return to prison, despite their efforts at a successful reintegration? These are some of the challenges that individuals face after being released from prison or jail. In Returning Home: Reintegration after Prison or Jaill, the author presents the results of his interviews with dozens of parolees who shared their life experiences about being released from prison and managing reintegration. Bahr explains the challenges faced by former inmates after they are released, including finding living arrangements, dealing with mental health and substance use issues, and avoiding relapse and rearrest. He also explores how race, gender, and social context affect outcomes. Although there are existing resources, Bahr provides a more comprehensive look at the process of reintegration using both qualitative and quantitative data to address these major concerns. Returning Home will serve as an excellent resource for pratcitioners, researchers, students, and individuals who have frirends and family members that have been in jail or prison and are attempting o reintegrate. -- from back cover.
