Congratulations to Dr. Julie Poehlmann on a new published book coming out in March 2023: When Are You Coming Home? How Children Cope When Parents Go to Jail. One of our Human Development & Family Studies alumni, Dr. Luke Muenter, is a co-author. The book presents findings on children’s stress, family relationships, health, home environments, and visit experiences through the eyes of the children and families affected by incarceration.
