AGING IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM:

FORGING AN INTERDISCIPLINARY HUMAN RIGHTS PRACTICE AND POLICY RESPONSE

 

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

This National Organization of Forensic Social Work (NOFSW) webinar entitled, Aging in the Criminal Justice System:  Forging a Human Rights and Interdisciplinary and Practice and Policy Response tackles the largely overlooked problem of mass incarceration and the rapidly increasing aging prisoner crisis in the United States and abroad. Currently, adults aged 50 and older comprise about 12% of the U.S. prison population and continues to grow steadily and is largely attributed to the stricter sentencing policies of the 1980s, which necessitated that a large number of convicted offenders were destined to grow old and even die in prison.  The correctional system in the U.S. and abroad are grappling with an aging population with long-term health and mental health care, including dementia in prisons, in a system not designed to be a long-term health facility. This webinar reviews the characteristics of the aging population in the criminal justice system, their complex health, mental health, and legal needs, including interpersonal and structural trauma, conditions of confinement.  Human rights principles and documents that include the rights to physical and mental health treatments, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Standards of Minimum Rules for Treatment of Prisoners are reviewed as well as relevant national and international policies, such as compassionate release laws, prison rape elimination act, and other prisoner rights. Promising practices that foster well-being and human rights principles for diversion, prison treatment, and community reentry programs, including dementia and hospice care, are reviewed.

Objectives: The overall objective is to: (1) increase participants understanding of aging in the criminal justice system and to (2) provide participants with interdisciplinary knowledge, values, and practical to work collaboratively with interdisciplinary professionals and other key stakeholders to take action on a local and global level to foster social change and policy reform that human and economic costs of older adults in the criminal justice system.
