Supporting Youth with Incarcerated Family


How can youth workers best support youth with incarcerated family? What do youth workers need to understand about the unique experiences of these youth? How can youth workers intentionally build healing relationships from a place of empathy and non-judgement?

Young people with incarcerated family are often invisible or ignored, but the very real impacts of the criminal justice system on their lives – and the stigma they experience – affect their wellbeing, their sense of self and belonging, and their future aspirations.

Join us for this conversation with practitioners and advocates to learn from their professional and lived experience, exploring the realities for youth with incarcerated family, including issues such as:

  • stigma, mental health, and identity
  • maintaining relationships and accessing supports
  • shifts in family and community dynamics
  • intersecting experiences of racism, sexism, ableism, and heteronormativity
