Visits by loved ones are important in the rehabilitation and reintegration of inmates. Through bonding with their loved ones, inmates continue to keep in touch with their families and develop positive social support towards their motivation to change.
Help Inmates Cope with Imprisonment
Alleviate inmates from depressive symptoms that may arise from adjusting to prison life.
Reduce Inmate Misconduct
Regular visits can improve attitudes, behaviours and moods of inmates, which can reduce misconduct.
Rebuild Support Networks
Visits are dedicated times for inmates to reconcile and improve relationships with their families. The quality of relationships between inmates and their families lead to positive rehabilitative outcomes.
Families may go through challenging times when their loved ones are incarcerated and may require support to cope with the situation. You may find these resources useful if you need support and assistance.
