Gender-responsive assessment tools, case planning, management models, and programming are growing in number and have shown through research to have much better outcomes with women than gender-neutral tools and programming. Most criminal justice professionals who work with women will tell you how different it is than working with men; yet, they do not have the education, training, and skills to engage effectively with them.
In jurisdictions where corrections staff have been trained in gender-responsive and trauma-informed approaches, we have seen reductions in institutional violence and misconduct, self-harming behaviors, and mental health referrals.
