about this item

From probation, parole, and electronic monitoring to house arrest, residential facilities, and fines, numerous supervision techniques and treatment programs constitute alternatives to incarceration -- and are designed to meet the level of risk and needs of each individual. Objective, comprehensive, and up-to-date, COMMUNITY-BASED CORRECTIONS, 11th Edition introduces you to the theory, procedures, evidence-based practices, and personnel involved in community-based corrections. Coverage of theories related to community correctional goals includes discussion of specific deterrence; rehabilitation through risk, needs, and responsivity; and restorative justice; as well as examples of their application. Input from professionals gives you invaluable insight into real-world practice. The MindTap that accompanies this text guides you through your course and includes video cases, career scenarios, visual summaries, and interactive labs that allow you to explore investigative techniques.
