According to the Lizman, Matthews, and Reyes (2014) in What Works? Short-Term, In-Custody Treatment Programs, there are a number of risk-needs-responsivity model programs that have shown significant promise to effect real change in long-term offender rehabilitation. However, in this article, the authors are more concerned with the successful application of such programs inside short-term correctional settings, such as jails or detention centers.
After reviewing the merits of the article, use proper APA format and at least 3 academic sources to write a 4–6-page response that focuses on the overall effectiveness of correctional rehabilitation.
Select 3 of the following program types, and discuss the effectiveness of these specific correctional rehabilitation programs:
Cognitive behavioral therapy
Educational and vocational programs
Substance and alcohol abuse treatment
Mental illness treatment programs
Provide an example of each type of program currently being used in correctional facilities.
How is the risk-needs-responsivity model applied to the 3 types of programs that you selected?
What are the determining factors in assessing the effectiveness of these programs, including the limitations?
