Marriage and Incarceration $69.00
Authors: Leana H. Venten 
Book Description:
This book is an overview of the Healthy Marriage Initiative. The purpose of this book is also to understand more fully the strategies for improving outcomes for couples who want to develop healthy marriages during and after one partner's incarceration. By convening a diverse group of experts with research and practice knowledge about incarceration and reentry, marriage strengthening, family processes, and domestic violence, this book will begin to identify research and program development needs that could be addressed by public- and/or private-sector investment in research and practice. Based on facilitated discussion on a variety of topics, the symposium participants will develop a framework for next steps in expanding marriage strengthening education services and research for couples separated by incarceration.
