Experiencing Corrections

Experiencing Corrections
From Practitioner to Professor

Edited by:

June 2011 | 296 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Experiencing Corrections: Lessons from the Field is a collection of essays written by scholars in the academic community with practical experience in corrections. Each essay contains the author's valuable and insightful reflections on their efforts to achieve important objectives while they were employed in the field. They review the types of knowledge (both academic and expert) that have been garnered by those who have been correctional practitioners and are now academic scholars. In retrospectively applying their theories and perspectives to corrections, it is hoped that a marriage between academics and practice can be developed.
