CRJ 206 - Correctional Treatment and Rehabilitation
This course covers methods used to improve correctional outcomes through evidence-based practices for those in jail, prison, on probation or parole. Problems such as addiction and mental health of offenders, juveniles, and those “at risk” in a facility or under community supervision will be addressed. Practices beyond traditional custody that show potential to reduce recidivism as a means of breaking the criminal cycle and controlling social and financial cost of incarceration are also examined.
