Mothering from Prison: Using Narratives in a Mother-Child Support Program
Trost, Betty Chamness
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v101 n3 p32-38 2009
Incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women who participated in the Storybook Project of Iowa told passionate stories of how their understanding of mothering had changed. They spoke of how the Storybook Project strengthened their mothering practices and relationships with their children and families. This study was an opportunity for reflection and evolution of a new understanding of themselves through telling their narratives of mothering. The study has implications for family and consumer sciences (FCS) professionals to be involved at a variety of levels in their work, including public policy advocacy and program administration.
