Johnna Christian discusses how family members are able to maintain relationships with incarcerated individuals. Her recent research in New York City studied the process of maintaining contact through prison visits. Although visits are costly and require family members to balance support of the incarcerated individual with outside demands, this contact and support while in prison lowers recidivism rates. The family provides instrumental support and can enhance program support during and after incarceration.

Professor Christian is an assistant professor at Rutgers University in the School of Criminal Justice.
