Tammi Walker, Graham Towl

Abstract

In 2015 the landmark suicide of the 100th woman to kill herself in prison custody passed largely unnoticed. This award-winning book by two experts sets out to redress the balance by examining all aspects of the history, present practices, causes and prevention prospects connected to this tragic chain of events. A long overdue analysis of a subject that is at last beginning to receive enhanced scrutiny. Focuses on both women and adolescent girls in custody. Looks at psychological, demographic, environmental and clinical factors. The first book of its kind.
