What Works in Offender Rehabilitation: An Evidence-Based Approach to Assessment and Treatment | Published : 2013


The development of offender rehabilitation programmes in Australasia has, in many ways, paralleled that which has occurred in other Western countries. This chapter offers an overview of the offender rehabilitation programmes currently offered by correctional services and considers some of the key challenges that currently face rehabilitation providers. It starts by providing an overview of Australasian jurisdictions, before outlining the types of programme that are currently offered. The chapter concludes with a discussion of some of the distinctive features of offender rehabilitation in Australasia, and comment on some of the challenges that face service providers in this area. © 2013 John ..
