CRJS 491: Offender Rehabilitation Report a Broken Link

Criminal Justice 491: Offender Rehabilitation focuses on current issues in offender rehabilitation from both a Canadian and an international perspective. You will have the opportunity to examine the theoretical literature about offender rehabilitation and the practical application of that literature as you explore “what works.” Rehabilitation is considered across a variety of areas that contribute to offender recidivism, including interventions for people who have drug addictions and for those who perpetrate property offences, sexual crimes, and domestic violence. The course also considers offender rehabilitation with men and women of different ages and from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Relevant professional ethics issues are also examined.

The following materials are required reading for Criminal Justice 491. Additional required readings are provided in the print Reading File.
