This guide from the National Resource Center on Justice Involved Women addresses gender-responsive approaches to discipline and sanctions in women’s correctional settings. The guide assists women’s facilities in developing gender-informed discipline and sanctions policies and practices to more effectively manage women in correctional settings and create safer facilities. It is designed for management teams within women’s facilities that have been charged by the agency/facility leadership to conduct a policy review of discipline and sanctions. However, it can also be used as a resource by other staff, stakeholders, and any individuals who wish to incorporate gender-responsive and trauma-informed strategies.
