New Book on Restrictive Housing in Correctional Facilities



In her latest Director's Corner message, National Institute of Justice Director Nancy Rodriguez announces the release of a new book, Restrictive Housing in the U.S.: Issues, Challenges, and Future Directions. Restrictive housing is also known as solitary confinement and administrative segregation. The book provides a current comprehensive review of what is known about the use of restrictive housing in U.S. correctional facilities, and the effects of this practice on incarcerated individuals, corrections staff and the institution as a whole.
