CRJ 202 Rehabilitation/Habilitation of Ex-offender

3 Credit(s)
The course covers the history of intervention with criminals from Colonial America to present times. Emphasis is placed on the political and social context in generating and supporting different correctional strategies. As such, course material includes both conservative (deterrence, incapacitation) and liberal (rehabilitation, restorative justice) crime control strategies, with an emphasis on “what works” to reduce crime. Strategies for classifying and treating criminal offenders, as well as treatment programs for special populations (sex offenders, substance abusers, and gender differences) are covered. Three lecture hours per week.
