Abstract

Examining Parental Stress in Incarcerated Setting

Henson, C., Williamson, A., Holland, T., & Tiano, J.

The majority of literature on incarcerated parenting styles and parental stress has focused primarily on mothers, with very little research conducted with fathers. Research has found that mothers report more parenting stress on the Parenting Stress Index (PSI) than fathers. In response to limited research in this area, the current study used preliminary data from a larger study to examine the correlation between parenting stress and various demographic variables (i.e. age, number of children, number of contact hours with children while incarcerated, number of contact hours with children while not incarcerated) with males and females in an incarcerated setting. Eight males and eleven females completed the PSI 4th Edition Long Form and a demographic form as part of a larger study. Results and implications of results will be discussed.
