COPING research findings launch

July 03, 2013

The COPING project represents one of the largest research efforts undertaken in understanding how children react and fare when a parent is imprisoned, what their vulnerability to mental health problems is, and how some children remain resilient despite facing the challenge of enforced family separation and all of its associated hardships. The COPING research has been conducted over three years and across a diverse range of countries (the UK, Germany, Romania and Sweden) chosen because they reflect a spectrum of different incarceration levels, welfare policies and interventions to support children of prisoners.

This event will showcase the outcomes of this project and officially launch the final report.

4pm-5pm - Report Launch and speeches

5pm - Wine and Nibbles
