Taking Care of Inmates

Taking Care of Inmates

Certainly, a jail or prison setting can be a stressful place to reside, with its various cultural rules, gangs, violent offenders, and relatively limited freedoms within the structured environment. Being institutionalized can lead to a sense of hopelessness, which may contribute to suicide. Understanding the importance of both the forensic psychologist and the forensic practitioner recognizing suicidality in inmates is of great importance in a correctional setting.

You will also address your own ability to be impartial regarding inmates who may be actively suicidal or apathetic about continuing life or that you may believe do not deserve to live. Consider this: Would you be able to ensure the safety and security of all inmates?
