Beschreibung:

This text explores the challenges that convicted offenders face over the course of the rehabilitation, reentry, and reintegration process. Using an integrated, theoretical approach, each chapter is devoted to a corrections topic and incorporates original evidence-based concepts, research, and policy from experts in the field, and examines how correctional practices are being managed. Students are exposed to examples of both the successful attempts and the failures to reintegrate prisoners into the community, and they will be encouraged to consider how they can help influence future policy decisions as practitioners in the field.

Rehabilitation, reintegration and reentry are immediate and pressing concerns in our society, as the rate of incarceration continually climbs. Recent activity in this field of study has generated an abundance of data which will inform and influence future policy. Rethinking Corrections is an edited text that will explore the challenges faced by convicted offenders over the course of rehabilitation and reintegration, and will meet the needs of upper level and graduate students as a primary text in required courses. The book's scope will span the earliest stages of incarceration (intake of risk and assessment), and extend through release into the community, including post-release supervision, employment concerns, healthcare and family life. Each of sixteen chapters will focus on a specific phase of the rehabilitation and reintegration process, using original, evidence-based text developed by contributors recruited for their expertise and reputation in their fields.
