Leadership Drivers for Implementing Gender-Responsive Interventions In 2016, both the Czech Prison Service and the Namibian Correctional Service began shifting their organizations toward implementing gender-responsive interventions in their women’s prisons. Gender-responsive interventions are those that recognize and embrace the different psychological, sociological, and cultural experiences of women offenders in comparison to men offenders. This workshop serves to provide a discussion of the gender-responsive principles of effective intervention and the leadership drivers that are necessary to begin moving toward evidence-based, gender-responsive practices with women offenders and to sustain this shift among organizations. The workshop will also emphasize that leadership drivers (e.g., technical vs. adaptive leadership) are only one part of a […]

Engaging and Supporting Staff to Co-create a Successful Rehabilitation Journey How do you build a professional team to rehabilitating released prisoners? We must always remember that the chances of released prisoners to rehabilitate or fail are a priory equal, and that rehabilitating released prisoners requires to change the social attitude toward released prisoners and to look for new ways to rehabilitate them. Hence it necessitates having employees who believe in the ability of released prisoners to change and a willingness to partner with others in co-creating a new way that embraces both welcoming the chances of succeeding but at the same time accepting the risks of failure. In my presentation […]

Working to Give: Investigating the Impact of Engaging Incarcerated Indigenous Men in Meaningful Work to Give to Tsilhqot’in Communities in British Columbia, Canada Since 2012, federally incarcerated Indigenous* men within British Columbia have been participating in “Work 2 Give”, a project whereby federal offenders create needed furniture, clothing and cultural items for Tsilhqot’in First Nation communities. This project engages federal offenders in meaningful work as part of rehabilitative programming directed toward a safe reintegration into society. With compelling evidence of the glaring inequities for Indigenous men at all levels of the criminal justice system, particularly related to rehabilitation and reducing the risks for re-offence, we are investigating the impact of […]

Growing while Incarcerated: The Impacts of Gardening on Men in a Minimum Security Institution Indigenous people in Canada experience disproportionate levels of incarceration and food insecurity, both of which are tied to historical and ongoing colonialism, racism and dispossession. This paper will present preliminary findings from an ethnographic study exploring the impact of a prison-based garden in British Columbia, where men who are incarcerated grow produce that is donated to Indigenous communities. Interviews with these men, recipient community members, key stakeholders and program leaders provide an in-depth, qualitative investigation of the project and it’s impacts. Specifically, this paper will explore the ways in which the garden program influences: the experiences […]

Specialist Mental Health Teams in Correctional Settings With offenders experiencing increasing levels of mental health difficulties, New Zealand’s Department of Corrections is exploring whether our current service model appropriately engages and supports these individuals. Our priority is to address the gaps in mental health services experienced by offenders in custody and the community. Traditionally, mental health services are provided by local health boards but increasing public demand for these services has resulted in offenders, who can be harder to work with, becoming a lower priority. In 2016 we will trial placing specialist mental health clinicians in our sites to work with prisoners and community based offenders who experience mental health […]

Developing Transformational Leadership – The Role of Higher Education: Evidence Based Leadership While correctional professionals have a strong desire to be effective leaders, they are often trapped in every day crisis management. This dynamic and interactive workshop will explore and present the critical need for developing transformational leaders who focus on vision and positive change that makes our correctional systems more just, and improves our correctional outcomes. Universities can and must play an active role in the continued professional development of correctional staff providing them the evidence – based knowledge, and the leadership tools they need to be successful, while motivating them and inspiring them in their significant roles and […]

Selling Correctional Leaders and Students on Higher Education: The Making the Connection Project The Making the Connection project is aiming to introduce digital technologies into Australian prisons to allow access to digital higher education for incarcerated students. But correctional leadership and custodial personnel, because of the legitimate need to maintain public safety, are highly risk averse, especially when dealing with digital technologies. This paper describes how the project team worked with three levels of correctional leadership across a number of correctional jurisdictions to successfully deploy the project at 20 sites. It elucidates the engagement strategy employed by the Making the Connection project, a crucial factor in the success of the […]
