Rehabilitation Paper

...Rehabilitation Pap CAJ: Introduction to Corrections . Rehabilitation Paper The goal of rehabilitation came during the middle of the twentieth century when corrections adopted a medical model, in which crime was believed to be the result of an underlying pathology of offenders that could be diagnosed and treated (Seiter, 2011). Offenders were considered sick and in need of treatment to prepare them to return to the community as productive, law-abiding citizens. Correctional agencies implemented a variety of treatment programs to improve offenders and to provide them with the tools necessary to be successful members of society (Seiter, 2011). The need for rehabilitation of offenders was emphasized by the Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice, appointed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1966, which noted a need for “substantial upgrading” of the correctional system and its reorientation “toward integration of offenders into community life” (Seiter, 2011). Throughout the years, many processes have been created to form the rehabilitation process of criminal justice. This process has reached out to many offenders and their families by allowing them to return to the community as changed individuals. Rehabilitation has many different process, but most, if not all have been proven successful in returning offenders to the community as changed individuals (Seiter, 2011). Rehabilitation is defined as a return to a previous form. In criminal justice,......

...Rehabilitation Stefanie Dean CJS/230 May 26, 2013 Martin Grill Rehabilitation Although many individuals consider rehabilitation as a form of humane punishment for criminal offenders, it is actually a means of therapy rather than punishment. The objective of rehabilitation is to reform the offender so that he or she can return to the free world with the ability to lead a productive life free of crime. The rehabilitative ideal views criminal behavior as similar to a disease which should be treated with the scientific methods available in order to “cure” the offender. Many criminals suffer from mental and physical ailments, drug addiction, and limited opportunities to become successful; these issues increase the likelihood that they will eventually engage in criminal activity. If we merely incarcerate them while they “pay their debt to society”, they will most likely return to society only with additional difficulties; without the proper tools to know how to live appropriately. The additional difficulties gained from incarceration are: a criminal record that impacts the opportunity for employment, they will be older and still without marketable skills or the education needed, social relationships as well as social skills may have deteriorated during the time spent incarcerated and they may have become acclimated to the criminal environment and culture. Incarcerating offenders may actually increase recidivism rates. A rehabilitative approach, as opposed to a......

...Rehabilitation Paper Zahra Howard CJA 234 Professor King June 14, 2014 Rehabilitation Paper Each day in the United States, the correctional system supervises over six million of its residents. Approximately two million people are in prison or jail, while four million are on probation or parole. With so many people under its control, a central policy issue is what the correctional system hopes to accomplish with those it places behind bars or on community supervision. A simple response might be that the purpose of these correctional sanctions is to punish the criminally wayward. Since the inception of the American penitentiary in the 1820s, however, corrections has embraced as an important goal the transformation of law breakers into the law-abiding that is, rehabilitation or treatment. At times, the goal of reforming offenders has been dominant; at other times, its legitimacy and usefulness have been challenged and its influence on correctional policy diminished. But even today, after a period in the late 1900s of prolonged advocacy of getting tough with criminals, rehabilitation remains an integral part of the correctional enterprise and continues to earn support among the public in the United States. To begin, probation refers to adult offenders whom courts place on supervision in the community through a probation agency, generally in lieu of incarceration. However, some jurisdictions do sentence probationers to a combined short-term incarceration sentence......

...Rehabilitation Paper CJS/230 Introduction to Corrections September 14, 2014 In this paper, there will be thorough evaluations made about issues revolving around in prisons. It is a sticky topic being that reformers look to see if a prisoner can be rehabilitated in order to regain entrance into functioning society. Once this information is accessed, then can the prisoner be eligible for forms of release, including, parole, probation, community service, and other methods of early release. The main function in the correctional system has been, in the past, to rehabilitate criminal offenders and teach them how to become citizens who live a life free from crime. Some rehabilitation programs used to reform inmates include counseling, health and fitness programs, academic programs and religious programs. This is the basis for the discussion presented in this paper. The topics to be discussed include, defining rehabilitation, the origins of rehabilitation, prisoner rehabilitation and society, and the suggested improvement of rehabilitation. All of which are imperative to the understanding of the rehabilitation of prisoners. The definition of rehabilitation in the prison setting is, “something that makes a prisoner a better person” (Foster, 2006). Now, with this definition there is much controversy. The problem is, when speaking on making a prisoner better, you still have to wonder, is the prisoner better all around, or is he just better at becoming a different......

...Rehabilitation Kiera Bendolph The University of Alabama Abstract Rehabilitation is one of the key ways to helping prisoners/criminals that are released or still incarcerated. For a successful rehabilitation three components has to come into play: Healing, Treatment, and Education. To successfully rehabilitate someone it takes a process. You have to first take into account their childhood, and how/if they were victims before criminals. Then one has to decided which treatment(s) best fits to rehabilitate that specific individual, because what treatment works for one may not work for another. Lastly, educate them, give them a sense that there is more to life than the life they are living or the one they have experienced as a child. Rehabilitation What is Rehabilitation? To a prisoner it is hope for a better life. The goal of many rehabilitation programs is to reform the prisoners from committing crimes and assisting them in normal lives without any criminal activity. So many criminals return to prison, because they were not able to settle into a normal life outside those walls. That is why rehabilitation is important for criminals. It reduces that number of repeat offenders. Rehabilitation comes with a three component process: Healing, Treatment, and Education. Healing Offenders who were abused, neglected and/or addicted to drugs as children or adults must begin a meaningful healing process either through spirituality, addiction recovery or any other programs......

...Rehabilitation Stacy Budig CJS/230 September 25, 2011 Scott Joubert, Instructor Rehabilitation is a word that is heard often in the prison setting. Rehabilitation is defined as specific programs applied within the prison setting or outside intended to bring about the end of criminal behavior. Prisons have programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Anger Management classes that are available to inmates while in prison. Such programs as these are meant to help rehabilitate the criminals. Do they work for all criminals? No they do not. Some people go through these programs and become better people, while others do not. Rehabilitation was first talked about in the middle of the Twentieth Century, though there was rehabilitation earlier than that, it was just called different things. Several things came about that promoted widespread interest in rehabilitation. The first thing was the growth of scientific penology as a movement. James V. Bennett became the leading advocate of individualized treatment of criminals based on scientific observations and precepts, leading to the adoption of the medical model. This diagnosed criminals and chose a treatment specifically for their needs. The second thing was the Elmira System of Zebulon Brockway. The Elmira System provided rudimentary classifications, programs, and individualized release based on good behavior for its selected clientele. Prisoner rehabilitation affects prisons in a variety of ways. First of all......

...Rehabilitation for elderly When rehabilitation comes to the mind, many people think of getting a treatment for drug abuse or any type of addiction. Rehabilitation not only helps a person recovering from illness or injury, but, also helps to increase their function as much as possible and also provide mental support during rehabilitation. However, there are different purposes of rehabilitation while restoring a person’s state of well-being. Some senior citizens may require a residential care facility and their family members may not be able to stay around them due to their busy lifestyles. In such situation, rehabilitation centers are extremely essential for elderly people, whether they are suffering from various diseases such as terminal illnesses or needs special attention due to their old age. Rehabilitation centers provide facilities to those people, who are sick and unable to perform their everyday life activities independently. It also helps to restore their good health conditions that are sick: physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. Elderly people definitely need special attention to improve their health, advocate their emotional problems and organize them to make their life easy. An article by unknown says that the numbers of Americans over 65 is expected to nearly double by 2030.” So, we need more health care facilities and workers to take care of the elderly. There is a demand of nurses, aides, therapists to provide proper health care to the elderly. The......

Juvenile Rehabilitation

...Juvenile Rehabilitation Shelly Stanko CJS/240 February 26, 2012 Farrell Binder Juvenile Rehabilitation In the previous few decades, the United States justice policy has become more punitive. In particular, in the 1990s legislatures all over the county passed laws under which an increasing number of young people can be charged in criminal courts and incarcerated in adult prisons. Certainly, in nearly every state today, youths between 13 and 14 can be prosecuted and penalized as adults for an array of crimes including non-violent offenses (Kristin, 2009). Punishments have become more severe even in the juvenile system. Generally, it is believed that the rising anxiety among citizens concerning the threat of juvenile crime has propelled this tendency and that members of the public favor this legislative tendency toward severe punishment. However, it is unclear whether this opinion about the right solutions to youth crime is precise. On the other hand, different surveys have found the public favors tougher policies regarding youth crime and punishing juveniles as severely as adults. However, a thorough review of sources of information about public views indicates that the perception that the public favors punishment for youths is largely based on either opinion surveys that pose few simplistic questions or publicized crimes like school shootings. It is possible that analysis of public......

Captive reclamation, parole, probation, and community disciplines will be outlined along with talking about how captive reclamation strike prisons also as how it bears on general society. Additional subjects to deal include the how parole is dissimilar from obligatory release, how probation equivalences to other cast of condemning, and how community disciplines bear on society.

...| | Rehabilitation| CJS/230| | | | Rehabilitation in prisons programs are applied within the prison setting to end criminal activity. "The aim of the prison is to get the prisoner into the right program, keep him or her there until the program is successfully completed, and then turn the prisoner out to test the commitment to non-criminal behavior" (Foster, 2006). However, the dictionary defines rehabilitation as restoring to a previous condition. Rehabilitation is a new concept in imprisonment. Rehabilitation was first emphasized for children being monitored in the juvenile courts. Rehabilitation then spread through the developing parole and probation alternatives into the adult prisons after World War II. Prisoner rehabilitation affects prisons and society negatively if the rehabilitation fails. If it fails then you may have an offender out in society committing crimes, or an offender being rearrested and returned back to prison, thus contributing to the issues that already exist in prisons, such as overcrowding. When rehabilitation works it has a positive effect on society and prisons. It shows that there is hope for other inmates to be rehabilitated. It also releases another productive citizen into society, which can be very good for the community, and makes society more open to having community based programs that assist with the rehabilitation of prisoners. The recommendation that I would make to prisoner rehabilitation is that it should be mandatory......

...Whenever you think about a prisoner, you normally think about an orange and white striped jumpsuit, right? Well, there are some prisoners out there that have the opportunity to get out of these jumpsuits and they do, but are right back into them a few months later. You then have some inmates that take advantage of the fact that the prisons offer rehabilitation for it’s prisoners that decide to take advantage of it because they want to turn their lives around and want to actually be able to have something once they do finally get out of prison. Prisoner rehabilitation is when the prisons do something and use resources in order to “make the prisoner a better person (Foster, Chapter 13, 2006)”. While a violent rapist can possibly be rehabilitated and turn from the raping lifestyle, they can still just graduate to a lesser crime. Either way, they have still been rehabilitated, but they are still a criminal. This just shows that it is possible for a person to change, but still also be set in their old ways. When most people think about prisoner rehabilitation, they think about the different programs that are offered in an effort to try to get the prisoners to turn their lives around and “turn over a new leaf” and also end their lives of crime and live a normal, crime free life (Foster, Chapter 13, 2006). Whenever the law enforcement officers and government officials are trying to determine whether or not to try to rehabilitate someone, they try to figure out what that particular......

...isolates an inmate from the real world to which he or she must eventually return. The values and mores that allow for success in prison are directly counter to the expectations in the community. Upon release the offender returns into society and must adapt to new behaviors as he or she determines their daily schedule, adapts to new technology and changes in the outside world, and a different social interaction styles with people in their home, workplace, and community. Prison Rehabilitation is when a ex prisoner is release from prison and they somehow retrieve and rethink to commit the same crime they did to get themselves in prison. Prison Rehabilitation affects the prison and the society because the prisoner committing the same crimes over and over again and they are not learning anything from the first time when they entered the prison. Once a prisoner reenters a prison the prisoners that are remain in the prison might think it is cool to be released and commit the same crime again. Prison Rehabilitation can be improve by having prisoners enter a program before they are release or give them jobs so that they will not rob and steal from others that work hard for their values and money. Parole is different from mandatory release because when you are on parole you need high supervision you are not able to go out of state, smoke, drink, and etc. Mandatory parole is sometimes called Conditional Release; some states have legislation that mandates supervised release under......
