 An Hour to An Hour to Kill with Doc Bonn: Prison Aging and Healthcare Issues with Guest, Tina Maschi, PhD

Tina Maschi, Ph.D., LCSW, ACSW is an Associate Professor at the Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service, New York Academy of Medicine Fellow, and the President of the National Organization of Forensic Social Work. Her research interests center around the intersection of aging, mental health, and the criminal justice system, particularly the influence of life course trauma on later life health and well-being. We will be discussing aging and healthcare issues in prison.

She is the lead author of the book, Social Worker and Researcher: Integrating Research with Advocacy with Dr. Robert Youdin. Her upcoming coauthored book with Dr. Allison Zippay on qualitative research for social work will be released in 2013.

With some 246,000 men and women over 50 in America’s overly stretched prison system, should we as a society consider releasing the fragile, the ill, and the dying among these prisoners?

Gerontological social workers who work in or intersect with the criminal justice system are well-positioned to provide the expertise in practice and policy advocacy needed to address the human rights and social justice issues that are adversely impacting the well-being of aging prisoners during prison and community reintegration (Snyder, van Wormer, Chada, & Jaggers, 2008). Unfortunately, there are not enough of them yet to meet the demand.Dr. Maschi also has over 10 years of clinical social work experience in community mental health and correctional settings, including the use of the arts for individual and social change.

Tina Maschi is a Public Voices Fellow with the Op-Ed Project.
