This text is an overview of rehabilitation, reentry, and reintegration with real-life examples of successes and failures and the most current research. It 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. Key features include: A comprehensive overview of the corrections process, starting with the beginning stages of incarceration, intake of risk and needs assessment, through to the release back into the community; A theoretical framework illustrates different types of rehabilitation models; Thorough coverage of correctional practices and processes in each chapter, presented by an expert in that area; Special interest boxes drawn from the direct experiences of both ex-offenders and practitioners to give students an informed view based on real-life experiences; Policy Implications at the end of each chapter examine current policies for convicted offenders and include examples of successful rehabilitation and reentry programs; Up-to-date research findings give both students and practitioners an overview of the current state of the field.
