This chapter begins the study of the process of prisoner reentry and reintegration where this transition starts, in prison and in the days and weeks after release. It analyzes participants’ accounts of their experiences in prison and the impact of their incarceration on their social isolation, family ties, and other important relationships. It describes participants’ transition experiences immediately after release, as they recover from prisonization, shedding their institutional identities and roles and start in earnest the process of social and economic reintegration. Finally, this chapter discusses participants’ experiences of parole, the conditions it imposes, and monetary sanctions -- the legal and financial obligations that accompany parole supervision.

Keywords:   prisonization, social ties, isolation, parole, parole conditions, monetary sanctions
