Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

The experiences of ex-offenders regarding stigma and its effect on reintegration and occupational engagement were explored. Results inform occupational therapy’s understanding of stigma and areas to further explore for future program development and research aimed at minimizing stigma and facilitating reintegration.
