I am conducting a voluntary research study about the experiences of family members who are thinking about moving to be closer to a loved one in prison, or who have already/previously moved in order to be closer to a loved one in prison. This IRB approved study is being conducted by Dr. Christopher P. Dum through the Department of Sociology at Kent State University.
If you or someone you know would like additional information about this study, please visit the following website:
I appreciate your time and consideration in participating in our research. It is only with your help that we can better understand how incarceration affects families.
