1. Chapski, Ashley M. Family Contact in Prison and Post-Release Family Social Support: Does Gender Affect the Relationship?.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2019, Bowling Green State University

Social support is important for successful reentry of incarcerated individuals into society. In the present study, I use data from the Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) to examine the relationship between family contact in prison and post-release family social support and conflict. I focus on possible gender differences in this relationship and control for baseline pre-release levels. Using a social bond perspective, I hypothesize that in-prison family contact in the form of visitation, phone calls, and receiving letters improves post-release family social support and reduces family conflict. Furthermore, I posit that the association between family contact in prison and post-release family social support and conflict will be stronger for women than men. I use OLS regression to analyze these hypotheses and Von Hippleā€™s suggested multiple imputation to handle missing data. I found that in-prison family contact was positively related to family emotional, instrumental, and interactional support and negatively related to family conflict. However, I did not find support for my gendered hypothesis. I discuss future research possibilities and potential policy implications. Advisors/Committee Members: Demuth, Stephen (Advisor).
