Rehabilitating Offenders is an online unit provided by Open Universities Australia in association with Griffith University. In essence, it examines a diversity of rehabilitation strategies, and evaluates them based on both practical and ethical concerns. You will consider the rehabilitation ideal in a philosophical sense, as well as observing its specific application by reviewing case studies.
To begin with, you will learn the core principles of offender assessment and treatment. Following this, you will examine different demographics – from young, violent offenders to drug-dependent adults – and how approaches alter significantly depending on the severity of the crime. In each instance, you will learn evidence-driven rehabilitation strategies to cope with the group under scrutiny.
Ultimately, Rehabilitating Offenders provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the various ways we can lower criminal behaviour through psychologically informed solutions. This way, you can feel confident assisting in issues with offenders when you begin your career.
