The Re-Emergence of Correctional Intervention


Other Titles in:
Corrections/Penology

May 1992 | 234 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In this decade, growth-centred intervention has re-emerged as a legitimate approach to the rehabilitation of criminals and now plays an accepted role with serious offenders. This role involves skill-development methods, control/surveillance techniques, psychologically oriented programmes and combinations of these procedures. This book describes the role - past, present and future - of rehabilitation within the context of other correctional approaches including the justice model philosophy. Palmer presents an intervention framework and a related theoretical structure that can assist in programme development, in intervention planning for offenders and in understanding as well as evaluating change processes.
