Key Takeaway:
This volume presents findings from five new studies that focus on child- or family-level resilience processes in children with parents currently or recently incarcerated in jail or prison.

Children with incarcerated parents are at risk for a variety of problematic outcomes, yet research has rarely examined protective factors or resilience processes that might mitigate such risk in this population. In this volume, we present findings from five new studies that focus on child- or family-level resilience processes in children with parents currently or recently incarcerated in jail or prison.
