Thumbs up Support groups that support women who's significant other is incarcerated?

Im currently a student and designing a group that focuses on support groups that support women who's significant other is incarcerated. I'm having a difficult time gathering information, as far as statistics and processes used to create an theraputic enviornment for women. If you know of any such information, sites or organization would you please pass the information to me. Thank You

Advisory for PTO Members Regarding Requests from Journalists & Members of the Media, and Students/Researchers:

PTO welcomes journalists and/or members of the media to learn and educate themselves about prisons, prisoners, and their loved ones, as well as students and researchers doing research on these subjects.

We will, occasionally, allow the media or students/researchers to request information and personal stories from our members. However, PTO does not endorse any journalist, member of the media, story/report, media outlet, student/researcher, or educational/research institution.

If you decide to communicate with a media representative or a researcher, then you assume all of the risks involved. PTO is in no way liable for the outcome of the story/report/paper. Communication with members of the media and students/researchers is completely voluntarily and PTO holds no responsibility for the consequences of that communication.

PTO does not screen or authenticate any person(s) claiming to be from the media or from an educational/research institution, nor does PTO authenticate their motivations for obtaining the information.

As always, the disclosure of personal information (either yours or someone that is incarcerated) may have some serious repercussions. PTO has no way of predicting how the media or any researcher will present your story or that of your loved one. Any relationship with the media or any researchers is to be entered into at your own risk.

If you receive an unsolicited email or private message from a person claiming to be from the media or researching information for an educational or research institution, report it to the PTO Administration immediately.

patchouli, PTO Admin

I'm not really clear what you mean by, "...statistics and processes used to create an theraputic enviornment for women."

Are you trying to locate existing programs? Or, looking for rates of incarceration by age, gender, etc.? A little more information would be helpful so that we can provide the information you are seeking.

So...What's your point?

Default Group Design

Thank you for your response! Yes stats would be great and also some existing groups would be helpful as well because we are trying to design our own group but need stats showing the effectiveness of therapy or the tools used in group.
