Dr. Jennifer Eno Louden
My research interests lie in the area of correctional psychology, a field devoted to understanding the motivations for criminal behavior and designing programs to help people desist from crime. Much of my research focuses on 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 justice involved people with mental illness and how the criminal justice system supervises this group. To date, my research in this area has examined contextual influences on criminal justice outcomes, community corrections agencies’ policies and practices, and how stigma affects outcomes for justice involved people with mental illness. Recently, I have begun to study other vulnerable groups in the justice system, such as women and immigrants. I strive to make my research relevant to both policymakers and practitioners.
