Abstract: Taking the local and international context into perspective, this dissertation aims to understand the experience of children who have a parent in prison. Interviews were conducted with incarcerated parents and partners of incarcerated parents, teachers, social workers, volunteers and Director of Mid-Dlam Ghad-Dawl. The main findings imply that children who have a parent in prison might exhibit social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Infact among the most common difficulties encountered by children of prisoners are behavioural problems, emotional turmoil, the sense of loss, poverty, guilt, shame and inferiority. However, addressing the social, emotional and behavioural difficulties in children of incarcerated parents can provide an easier situation for these children. The study therefore concludes with recommendations and suggestions to be implemented by NGOs and people who work with children of prisoners. A proposed sample of a plan for an adequate visiting room in prison in also presented.
