“Aging Behind Prison Walls” Receives 2022 SSWR Book Award


Congratulations to Professor Tina Maschi, who has just been announced the winner of the 2022 Society for Social Work and Research Book Award for her book entitled Aging Behind Prison Walls: Studies in Trauma and Resilience!

In Aging Behind Prison Walls, published in December 2020 by the Columbia University Press, Maschi and co-author Keith Morgen offer a data-driven and compassionate analysis of the lives of incarcerated older people. The authors explore the transferable resiliencies and coping strategies used by incarcerated aging adults to make meaning of their lives before, during, and after imprisonment.

The Society for Social Work said in the announcement that in conferring this award, it is recognizing Maschi’s “outstanding scholarly contributions that advance social work knowledge.”

Maschi’s award will be presented during the SSWR Awards Presentation on Saturday, January 15, 2022, 2:00 – 2:30 pm, EST, at the 2022 SSWR Conference at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C.
