Mirrors of Prison Life: From Compartmentalised Practice towards Boundary Crossing Expertise

Research output: Book/Report/clinical guidelinesAnthologyResearchpeer-review


In this chapter, our aim is to broaden the understanding of the compartmentalisation of practices within and between correctional and health services and to emphasise the need to cross professional boundaries between these two services treating the same inmates. For this, we will provide a multidimensional “mirror” into prison life by bringing forth the different voices of the historically-distinct professional groups involved in prison and health services.
