The responsivity principle states that clinicians should tailor treatment delivery that will produce the most effective outcomes depending on unique needs of the client. It is important that the therapist considers each offender individually and adequately assesses their cultural, mental, and physical needs. There are several advantages (pros) and a couple disadvantages (cons) to the therapeutic approach of the RNR model. The pros of this model are that treatment intensity is matched with individual risk level, dynamic issues that are directly linked with crime, and that specific treatment is tailored to individual offenders. By matching treatment intensity to risk level, offenders receive treatment that will be most effective in meeting their therapy needs.
Lynne Bibeau, PhD. The focus is on what Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT) bring to the community and how these models help to promote safety in the community. The CIT model has become a very widely accepted program through out many police departments across the country. Through the CIT model police departments are focusing on improving outcomes a better resources and help for the mentally ill individuals officers come into contact with. The emphases on the CIT model for a specific time frame and statistically compared the program outcomes to before the program was implemented.
Triggers commonly cause clients to relapse and it is important for the development of self-advocacy. This advocacy can be developed by the transformation of thought through rigorous evaluation and understanding of thinking errors and cognitive distortions. CBT works towards skill building with a variety of tools and is effective because of its ability to adjust to meet the client’s needs while documenting progress. The program’s success comes from the implementation of CBT and a combination of other approaches. In alcohol and drug counseling, a client-centered approach has proven to be one of best practice.
I don’t really like that feeling but I understand that this type of questioning is used to get useful information from the client in order to provided effect services and appropriate treatment. The video provided demonstrates of how to introduce in ASI. I like how the counselor has a chance to explain what the ASI is and how it would be used.
But, if Daru had taken the prisoner to complete safety, it could have meant trouble with the law for him, too. And, unfortunately, it appears some of the prisoner’s acquaintances were ready to dish out some justice of their own, not knowing the full truth themselves. It appears, from the context of the story, that the protagonist was a nice man, and was not partial to treating people poorly. This was evident when he refused to take the prisoner to the jail himself.
The advantages of CPTED is that communities will have opportunities to play meaningful roles in crime prevention in their neighborhood, business leaders/owners will gain safer locations that are more attractive to customers and employees, and lastly planners/architects will gain a greater role in designing the environment. Law enforcement will benefit from this method because it will give links to repeating offenders in a specific area and gives clarification and action on important priorities in a community. The advantages will continue to expand in every agency using this method, due to new ideas that can be
If we had this kind of improvements in the technology related to the offenders and correctional, we could reduce the time that reformed people spend in jail, becoming again “bad apples,” and reduce the recidivism rate. Of course, this measure would only be possible with some kinds of prisoners. Those who are a real threat to the society and/or have been sentenced with the capital punishment, would not be part of this reduction of the prison
This argument presents solitary as a solution rather than a problem, a way to isolate violent offenders, keep order in oftentimes chaotic environments, and protect the prison population at large from especially dangerous inmates. For critics of solitary confinement, it can often feel like an argument with a frustratingly simple foundation: what else are corrections officers supposed to do? This question, however, as well as the argument in full, deserves consideration in any serious discussion of solitary
To be more specific, this essay has investigated if the primary objective of imprisonment is to punish or to help the criminals. It is clear that there is a strong case on both sides. Both aims of imprisonment, the punishment, and the rehabilitation are significant for the prisoners. Someone who committed a crime needs to get help, needs to change his life and become a better person. However, this is not possible to happen while he is out of the prison.
I also liked this assessment, because it was more through compared to the other assessments I found. The assessment touched on all the areas in a child’s life that would suggest that they needed a counseling service, or was in need of crisis intervention. When completing this assessment for my client, I recognized that this assessment would be extremely helpful for a counselor, or therapist. I tried to not make my client too complex, but for a client who in crisis this would be a quick, and efficient tool to use to quickly get through the explanation stage, and to the healing stage of the
The benefits of creating typologies for sexual offenders, is to show how each category of offenders differ and how they are alike since it is such a diverse group. Typologies also show their motivation, how they specialize and will they be a recidivist. This helps the law enforcement to know what to look for as well as the doctor if they are put into treatment it tells the doctor how to treat
Furthermore, when information sharing is increased it allows greater access to data on sex offenders. This would help law enforcement to promote justice by having equal access to information. However, at this stage there is not enough research to show to what extent this will impact the justice system’s efficiency. Members of the public can protect themselves Proponents for sex offender registers claim that they provide an effective preventative tool because, if people know where offenders reside, those in the community can protect themselves from the risk that sex offender pose.
Rhonda, I enjoyed reading your discussion piece and found it very informative. I agree with the fact that victimization prevention and crime prevention work hand in hand with one another. Both are critical aspects of our criminal justice system and involve many strategies centered on prevention. Crime prevention strategies require society to engage in collaborated efforts in order to eradicate social roots associated with lawbreaking behaviors. Otherwise, victimization prevention can involve an individual’s risk assessment; it can also expand to a formal organization like our schools, church groups, or even neighborhood watch groups.
Introduction Since the War on drugs began American has had a prison problem. The goal of this era and the tough on crime era that proceeded it the goal was to be tough on crime in order to stop it. This meant mass incarceration and hard time for offenses such as drug use (drug policy: facts). The 1990’s saw the biggest increase of the prison population with federal policies such as three strikes. Today these polices has made America the number incarcerated group in the planet despite having only 5% of the world’s population (ACLU: Prison Facts).
