Managing Special Populations in Jails & Prisons
Managing Special Populations in Jails & Prisons
Leading experts and practitioners help you meet the administrative, legal, clinical, security, and staff training challenges posed by today's inmate populations. You will learn how to develop workable policies and procedures for correctional management of special populations-and the different approaches that work for jails vs. prisons. This resource examines clinical and administrative issues that arise when dealing with emergent and chronic health problems of inmates-from hepatitis, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS to hypertension and heart disease, diabetes, and epilepsy. The contributors outline effective clinical and operational approaches for inmates with mental disorders-schizophrenia, depression, PTSD, dual diagnoses. Special attention is given to ?must-address? situational and medical problems of transgendered inmates in correctional institutions. (2005, 710 pages)
