Dr Kelly Lockwood

I have both practice and research experience working with women involved in the Criminal Justice System. My research broadly focuses on women and the criminal justice system. I am particularly interested in how imprisonment is understood and experienced by women and more specifically by mothers. My work has involved: evaluation of visiting facilities in a women’s prison; explorations of how mothers experience imprisonment; relationships between mothers in prison and the carers of their children; and an exploration of the impact on children of having a parent involved in the criminal justice system, producing recommendations for policy and practice including for NHS Glasgow and Clyde.
