Mentoring Children at Risk

Mentoring Children at Risk is a course that combines lecture with hands-on work with children of incarcerated mothers at a summer camp. Topics covered in lectures include models of developmental psychology, middle childhood development, maternal incarceration, the impact of poverty on development in children, risk and resilience, and managing problem behaviors. The mentoring component of the class involves spending one week at a sleepover camp specifically for children of incarcerated mothers.
