Shivangi Gupta, a psychotherapist and researcher enrolled in a doctoral programme at Virginia Tech University, will be presenting a talk titled ““My family member is in prison”: Insights from research and interventions with families of the incarcerated”

Her talk aims to shed light on the psychosocial health and experiences of children and families who have a parent/family member in prison. It endeavours to facilitate participants’ knowledge of the educational, social as well as emotional functioning of children of the incarcerated, by drawing on the findings of a two-year long ICMR funded qualitative research study (2017-2019), undertaken at the Department of Social Work, Jamia Millia Islamia. Through this talk, Shivangi will focus on the experiences of these families, as well as their incarcerated family members, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the institutional and non-institutional support mechanisms available to these families as well as the challenges inherent in accessing these systems. Shivangi will weave insights from secondary research as well as her own experience of undertaking social interventions with the families of the incarcerated to provide a firsthand, comprehensive understanding.

You are invited to attend the seminar in person or join the live seminar via Zoom using the link provided at the top of the page and write to events@iphindia.org to stay in touch.
