CBS 2 Interviews Dr. Sandhya on Mental Health Services in Prisons

CBS 2 Chicago reported on work by Shaifali Sandhya, Ph.D. in providing psychotherapy to inmates at a medium/high security prison, including the challenges posed by the work environment and the importance of her training in systems, forensics and empirical work with vulnerable populations.

In her interview, Sandhya added, “If professionals in the industry neglect to study how social forces can impact phenomena like high school dropout rates, single motherhood, low entry of women in technology or the breakdown of family structure — it can lead to ineffective policy responses, and further immobilize the vulnerable amongst us.”

Dr. Shaifali Sandhya is a professor and clinical psychologist with expertise in health and wellness. Read Chicago Professor Uses Psychology To Help Underserved Prisoners
