This systematic literature review: ‘The Effectiveness of Parenting Programmes for Incarcerated Mothers on Parenting Outcomes, Parental Stress and Parental Self-Esteem’ explores the numerous variables impacting on the effectiveness of parenting programmes in the forensic setting. It is evident from the existing literature that research in this area is relatively new and in need of a more rigorous approach. The large scale project: ‘Fathers in Prison: The experience of parenting an Infant from Prison. An IPA Study’ involved interviewing 6 fathers in prison who had parented their infant during their custodial sentence. Analysis of the results revealed that this population invest greatly in their parenting on emotional, practical and cognitive levels. This has links to both psychological pain and psychological growth. Implications for practice are discussed.
