The Re-Emergence of Correctional Intervention / Edition 1
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.
