“Raising a Child through Prison Bars” Project (with financial support from the DAPHNE III Programme of the European Union), implemented in Greece, Bulgaria and Romania.
The project’s objectives were to contribute to:
support Imprisoned Mothers (IM) & future mothers to handle their own experiences of abuse [either Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) or Child Abuse & Neglect (CAN)] & accomplish their parental role in as an effective way as possible
prevent & combat CAN as well as to provide support to Children of Imprisoned Parents (CHIP) in order to both disrupt the cycle of violence & enhance children’s resilience
collect data in 3 European countries (Greece, Romania, Bulgaria) aiming to map the Imprisoned Mothers population in regards to demographic information, needs and problems faced by Imprisoned Mothers, their children and families, as well as in regards to CAN and attachment style for both Imprisoned Mothers and Children of Imprisoned Parents.
“RAISING A CHILD” material was published in Greek, English, Romanian, Bulgarian and Hungarian languages.
There is also a CD with the publications of the project.
