Parenting Roles And Experiences Of Abuse In Women Offenders: Review Of The Offender Intake Assessments


Throughout the process of working on this study, I have been privileged to become familiar with the lives of many women offenders. It has been truly an important experience for me. The opportunity to spend a couple of months with the Women Offender Sector at Correctional Service of Canada, where this project was undertaken, and to be able to consult with and learn from its staff, is also greatly appreciated. I would therefore like to thank everyone at the Sector for sharing their knowledge and expertise with me. I would particularly like to thank Kelly Blanchette, Research Branch, Tracy Buffalo, Women Offender Sector and Donna McDonagh, Health Services, for reviewing the first draft of this report and providing valuable comments and suggestions. Finally, thanks to Minhtri Truong for reviewing files that were written in French, and sharing his impressions with me.
