This introduction provides an overview of a multi-State, longitudinal study that included close to 1,500 incarcerated fathers that evaluated family strengthening programs offered in prisons. The study examined the fathers’ parenting relationships prior to and during incarceration, the impact of participation in family programs during incarceration, factors that affect father-child relationships after release from prions, children’s well-being following a father’s return home, and couples’ relationships during reentry.
