PSY 623 Offender Rehabilitation and Reintegration

Week 1 Discussion

DQ1 What are some of the organizational differences between correctional mental health delivery systems? Why is an understanding of these differences important? Is there any particular delivery system that appeals to you more than others?

DQ2 One of the purposes of incarceration is incapacitation. Incapacitation is the concept that threats to the community are removed through a period of incarceration. So how can we appropriately balance the goal of incapacitation with the role of reintegration that correctional facilities must play? Are these two goals so juxtaposed that correctional facilitates can do neither goal appropriately? Access and read the Statement on the Integration of Faith and Work. Explain how might a person with the Christian worldview approach the balance of the goal of incapacitation with the role of reintegration.
