Dr. Jennifer Eno Louden
My research interests lie in the area of legal psychology. Specifically, I am interested in issues related to criminal justice and mental health. I study these issues using clinical and social psychological methodologies, and examine these issues from multiple levels of analysis. Much of my work has focused on the experiences of offenders with mental disorder (OMDs) and how the criminal justice system supervises these offenders. To date, my research in this area has examined contextual influences on criminal justice outcomes for OMDs (such as social support and neighborhood characteristics), community corrections agencies’ policies and practices for supervising OMDs, and probation officer decision-making. My work also examines the stigmatization of these offenders and how this stigmatization affects offenders’ outcomes in the criminal justice system. I strive to make my research relevant to both policymakers and practitioners.
