Abstract

This study is a descriptive analysis of the adaptation responses of inmates at a correctional institution for women located in the midwest of the United States. Data for the study were collected and analyzed using a qualitative methodological approach. This investigation extends the literature on women prisoners by examining the inmates' perceptions of the deprivations of incarceration; how inmates respond to the deprivations of incarceration; and the impact that relationships outside of prison has on the inmates' response to incarceration.
