Laps on kodu peegel. Midagi sellist vist väidetakse sageli. Milline aga on kodu ja eriti isa mõju lapse kujunemisel kuritegelikule teele sattumisel, sedalaadi uuringuid ei ole palju ette juhtunud. Seetõttu siinviidatu oma koha leidiski.

Kontekstiks:

The emphasis on incarcerated men’s hypermasculinity in the prison environment (Sykes, 1958) resulted in an over-simplified portrait of their masculinities that scholars have recently begun to correct (Maycock & Hunt, 2018) by pointing to how incarcerated men experience and express vulnerability, fear, sadness, and love (Crewe et al., 2014; Laws & Lieber, 2020; Umamaheswar, 2020b, 2021b).

Kust laps saab esimese kujutluse sellest, mida tähendab olla “mees”?

How – and from whom – do incarcerated men learn what it means to “be a man,” how do these constructions of masculinity shape their familial relationships early in life and thereafter as adults, and how might masculinity be incorporated into therapy programs designed to strengthen incarcerated men’s familial ties?

Autorite ambitsioon:

we explore these questions by investigating the intergenerational transmission of masculinity constructions in the family setting. In so doing, we highlight how a deeper understanding of incarcerated men’s masculinities can inform gender-responsive family therapy for these men.

Erinevad teraapiad … relatsiooniline teraapia:

Relational therapy is an integrative form of therapy that focuses on individuals’ relationships with other people, and it is premised on the notion that high-quality, strong, and meaningful relationships lead to emotional stability

Peresuhted on olulised:

The lack of professional help for family relationships among incarcerated populations is particularly disheartening because social and emotional support (especially from significant others such as family members, friends, and partners) is closely tied to mental and emotional well-being (Wallace et al., 2016). Further, family ties are crucial in promoting reentering persons’ desistance efforts (Liu & Visher, 2021; Mowen & Visher, 2016; Sampson & Laub, 1995, 2016).

Some men used their fathers as models of the kind of men they wished to avoid becoming, while other men credited their fathers for enacting conventional masculine roles (such as being a provider and protector) successfully, but emphasized their commitment to modifying the model of masculinity they had inherited from their fathers by being more involved and invested in their families’ domestic lives.
