Young women in prison:
In conversation with Sophie Goldingay
[Transcript of this podcast is found in the tab below]
Mixing adolescents and adults in prison? We usually think not. Sophie Goldingay provides a different view from her research about young female prisoners. Instead having ‘Aunties’ around can help young people culturally, spiritually and behaviourally.
Sophie Goldingay is a senior lecturer in the School of Health and Social Development at Deakin University, and is currently Bachelor of Social Work Honours Coordinator and a Teaching and Learning Coordinator within the School of Health and Social Development. She uses mixed methods and cross-cultural research approaches with institutionalised populations such as prisoners and people with psychiatric disabilities, people with learning disabilities, and equity and access in Higher Education. She led a team which created a Multidimensional Framework for Embedded Academic Skill Development which won the Vice Chancellor’s award for Excellent Contributions to Equity and Access in 2012. The project has led to significant developments across the Faculty of Health, including a Pathways project with the local TAFE in Geelong, and a project embedding academic skills into the Bachelor of Social Work.
