Given the conditions of mass incarceration in the U.S. today, what can be done to sustain family connections from afar? Where do connections happen? How does the perceived presence of loved ones affect the quality of “doing time”? I report on empirical data from my book, Fathers, Prisons and Family Reentry: Presencing as a Framework and Method regarding: the lived experiences of families doing time, the hopelessness of future-oriented policy, and model approaches and programs in the US and Europe.
