Research at Florida State University’s College of Social Work Examines Internal and External Barriers of Reentry

The second of four reports from a groundbreaking study conducted by the Institute for Justice Research and Development (IJRD) at Florida State University’s College of Social Work, led by Dr. Carrie Pettus-Davis, was released earlier this week. The second quarterly report provides additional information on the internal and external barriers facing formerly incarcerated individuals, focusing on the psychological toll of reentry, the impact on reentry on family members, and the different ways men and women experience re-entry.

Launched in May 2018, the multi-state, multi-site trial is testing the effectiveness of the innovative 5-Key Model for Reentry in 50 prisons across the nation.
