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.
The Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 is a important act for the private investigator to be aware of, it can have significant advantages and disadvantages to how your investigations/assignments turn out. The PACE covers all areas such as powers of stop and search, powers to search premises, arrest, questioning, identification of suspects, tape recording etc. The Act also provides a clear statement of the rights of the individual and the powers of the police towards that individual in differing circumstances. This will be vital to our work as a private investigator to know where we stand in many areas, should we have any dealings with the police in our work, we will have the advantage of knowing if the police officers are within their rights
These findings are important because it is useful to know the effects that our policies have. The study found that “specific characteristics of a juvenile sexual offense have not proven to be reliable predictors of future offending (Caldwell, 2009).” It’s important to know this so that if current policies are not effective, we can look at new and possibly more effective ways of handling these types of things that could prove to be more effective. The third article is “Female and Male Sex Offenders: A Comparison of Recidivism Patterns and Risk Factors” by Naomi Freeman. The purpose of the article is to study the differences between male and female sex offenders. The main focuses of the study are on recidivism patterns and risk factors for male and female offenders.
There are hotlines to contact such as, The National Human Trafficking Resource Center and Hope for Justice if you believe someone is being used for sex trafficking. Educating ourselves is another step to ending sex trafficking. Being able to recognize the signs of someone being held in sex slavery is very important in being able to get them help. Some of these signs are fear, limited freedom of movement, and anxiety. These victims are given promises of money, education, and a better life.
The Court in Harris adopted the "totality of the circumstances" approach which the Commission had previously set forth in its "Guidelines on Discrimination Because of Sex" and in its Policy Guidance "Current Issues of Sexual Harassment." Thus, in evaluating welcomeness and whether conduct was sufficiently severe or pervasive to constitute a violation, investigators should continue to "look at the record as a whole and at the totality of the circumstances, such as the nature of the sexual advances and the context in which the alleged incidents occurred." The Court also noted that the factors that indicate
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.
It almost felt like the client was being severely interrogated about a crime committed. 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.
Analysis, Critics, & Suggestion The paper of Oonagh Rietman is delivering very interesting issue. Where he focused on how cultural relativist and feminist critique towards the international human right. While at the same time culture relativist and feminist quite against each other in their point of view about women. In the paper author provide enough argument and data to support the topic, so that the reader can understand the topic that he deliver very well. The point of the paper also easy to achieved.
A good lawyer will be very keen, and have a good attention to detail. They have the incredible role of dissecting witness testimony and bringing out whatever inconsistencies exist in the given statements. There are a wide variety of tactics that may be employed by the defense to probe a witness’s statement. During the cross examination of the officer or witness, the defense attorney will have the opportunity to hone in on particular parts of the given testimony. The defense can employ leading questions, in order to set traps.
This approach takes into account that the trauma the victims have faced are profound and complex and service will be given under an individualistic and collaborative approach. The primary goal here is to simply encourage empowerment and recovery while concurrently treating mental health difficulties that need to be treated for the long term health of the victim. Treatment will fall under the category of individual and group therapy with an emphasis on cognitive behavioral therapy as it has the largest evidence-base support in its effectiveness. (TTHW) Furthermore, within the service of mental health is also the reward of forming an interpersonal relationship. Mental health providers will strive to build appropriate relationships with the victims as not only does this goal create a healthy bond between the provider and the victim, but it encourages healthy social
This gives the reader an accurate and detailed description of what the author is trying to convey, making it easier for the author to show urgency in other situations. Deborah Blum uses elements of diction to support the aggressive style of her story. some elements used by Blum are connotation/ denotation, cacophonous, and monosyllabic/ polysyllabism. this style can easily be supported by other elements as
Taking this first step in reconciliation allows for a face to face encounter where restorative dialogue can occur between the victim and the offender in a genuine interaction (Dancig-Rosenberg and Galt, 2013). Furthermore, this process requires that the offender take explicit responsibility for the actions committed while listening and responding to the victim affected by their crime so as to present their own approach for repairing the damage caused (Dancig-Rosenberg and Galt, 2013). This process promotes honest dialogue and an empowering experience for the victim as they feel that their needs are heard and feelings expressed (Dancig-Rosenberg and Galt, 2013). In all, restorative justice benefits the victim, the offender and the community as community ties are strengthened while the process of the restorative approach discourages the offender from committing further crimes through the use of an open-minded and rehabilitative process (Dancig-Rosenberg and Galt,
I enjoy reading your post; you provided sound knowledge of the ACA and NAADAC Code of Ethics. “The NAADAC Code of Ethics was written to govern the conduct of its member and it is the accepted standard of conduct for addiction professionals certified by the National Certification Commission.” Therefore, it is the responsibility of the addiction professional to safeguard the integrity of the counseling relationship and to ensure that the client is provided with services that are most beneficial. In all areas of function, the addiction professional is likely to encounter individuals who are vulnerable and exploitable. In such relationships he/she seeks to nurture and support the development of a relationship of equals rather than to take unfair
In my opinion, the positive aspect of this research is that the author gained the trust of the gang members, while at the same time, the negative aspect of it, is that he had to witness the illegal activities which he (presumably) could or did not report. In know that researchers have certain ethical/responsibility to uphold, however, in this scenario, I would think that the author’s life would be in danger if he reports these illegal activities that he’s
Although the authors are using the Rogerian method to persuade you and help you understand their point of view. Shemtob and Lat’s essay on executions being televised was very persuading and effective based on their great use of Rogerian writing style. As a matter of fact, the authors used the Rogerian method in their thesis. They stated “We respectfully
