LIUB Children of Incarcerated Parents Issue Brief


As a member of the Executive Team for an organization serving vulnerable children, you have been tasked to prepare a report summarizing the development of a program to support these children. Your task as an experienced manager hoping to convince others to address the problem is to prepare an Issue Brief that:

  • presents facts on the nature of this problem, (incidence, prevalence, special needs of this population)
  • identifies the individual, familial and community risks that have contributed to the problem,
  • discusses relevant policy initiatives or laws around the problem,
  • explores why it makes sense (and cents) for the community to support this population and fund programs to support the problem,
  • notes other systems that may also be serving these children,
  • identifies the protective factors that may be lacking in the families of these children,
  • summarize at least three program models or evidence-based interventions to improve the outcomes for these specific children and families in the child welfare system,
  • presents resources already available to address the issue and support the population, and
  • discuss ways that the problem could have been prevented from affecting children altogether.
  • The brief should be between 3-5 pages in length (not including bibliography); single spaced with one

    inch margins using a10-12 point sized font. It is to be presented in a format that clearly outlines content marked with headings for the following sections:

    ✓ Nature of the Problem

    ✓ Risk Factors

    ✓ Policy Implications

    ✓ Case for Support

    ✓ Collaborating Systems

    ✓ Protective Factors

    ✓ Program Models
