Zachowania homoseksualne kobiet osadzonych w zakładach karnych w kontekście procesu resocjalizacji
Homosexual behaviors among female prisoners in the context of the process of resocialization
Languages of publication
Isolation resulting from imprisonment disrupts the way of human natural functioning. It also leads to deprivation of natural human needs which forces the convicts to adapt to new living conditions. Strategies of adaptation among imprisoned women are characterized by kind of intimacy between the inmates and concentration on feelings. Homosexual erotic relationships are very important part of imprisoned women’s social and emotional life though they rarely depend on actual sexual orientation. In the case of imprisoned women, entering into intimate relationships with other inmates is mostly result of the desire to survive, social or emotional factors but also materialistic motives or subculture influence. It has been observed that imprisoned women have tendencies to recreate in prison some relationship patterns to those which occur on freedom and also to engage into emotional and partner relationship. These observations create possibilities for therapeutic and resocialization influence based not only on education process but also on appealing to prisoner’s inner world of feelings and experience.
