Bereavement among young men in prison

Congratulations to our Research Fellow Nina Vaswani, whose excellent article ‘Bereavement among young men in prison’ has been chosen as one of 25 articles to be republished in the final issue of Criminal Justice Matters, the quarterly magazine produced by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies.

Nina’s article discusses the fact that young people involved in offending experience parental, multiple and traumatic deaths at a higher frequency than in the general population, and that these high rates of trauma and multiple bereavements for young offenders are concerning, because traumatic deaths can result in a more complicated bereavement response and multiple bereavements can cause more negative outcomes in areas such as education, depression, self-esteem and risk-taking behaviour.

The magazine, which is focused on discussion of policy developments, has advised that this will be the final issue in the current format before the publication is relaunched in 2017. The final issue includes some of the best articles published over the last 26 years.
