to research correctional systems to determine correctional best practices for particular program areas
to synthesize program elements and structures to provide the basis for a program considered to be using best practices
Select a program area that you would like to explore to determine the best practices or exemplary programs operated by correctional systems.
Research the field of corrections, correctional journals, correctional periodicals, various departments of corrections, and other resources to identify exemplary correction programs for the area that you have selected.
Determine the elements of these programs that make them exemplary and would be considered best practice in the correctional field.
Write up your findings in a report that provides a description of the program, the elements that lead to the success of the program, and the program structure and design that provide for an effective and successful correctional program.
The possible best practices program choices:
Correctional Mental Health
Correctional Health Care
Correctional Substance Abuse
Parole and Probations Supervision
Correctional Sex Offender Programs
If you have another area that you would like to explore for this project, contact the instructor for permission to research another program area.
