Incarceration

No matter what their parent has done to end up in prison, children and youth are left with trauma, confusion, anger and complex grief and loss. Each of their situations is unique. Each child, youth and family needs support to understand the circumstances, absolute assurance it is not their fault, reassurance it is also not their destiny, and acknowledgement that it is okay - if not normal - to still love our parents, even if they have engaged in criminal activity.
