Show Summary Details


This chapter addresses offender rehabilitation. It discusses the translation of effective programs into policy and practice. In some countries this is done through accreditation. While the future looks bright for this new approach in corrections, the chapter draws attention to a number of future perspectives, including the challenges of identification and management of special populations of offenders and the need for more attention to treatment fidelity.
