Choose one correctional policy or program that is expected to reduce recidivism and analyze it in two ways. The program I have choosen to discuss is educational and vocational training in prisons. This is what you should use for the paper.
First, you will assess the theoretical justifications for the program with regard to Risk-Need-Responsivity and the 8 Principles of Effective Correctional Intervention
Second, you will synthesize the available evidence on your topic with regard to recidivism and conclude, based on the Maryland scale, whether it is a program that works, doesn’t work, is promising, or is of unknown value.
