What is an example of an educational program used in institutional and community corrections? How do educational and treatment programs impact the success of rehabilitation? What would happen to rehabilitation efforts and success if these programs were limited, or not available? Explain.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

One example of an educational program used in corrections is job skills or work release programs. Such programs allow inmates to leave correctional confinement to work for the day,then return afterwards. This type of program is not available to all inmates, as the inmate must earn the privilege of work release first. It is typically not available for violent offenders. Statistical data on the success of educational and treatment programs in corrections is limited, but many prove successful in changing prisoner outlook, providing job skills, and ultimately decreasing recidivism rates for those inmates who participate successfully in such programs. If these programs were limited or unavailable, rehabilitation success would decrease.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Treatment programs within prisons and jails can encourage participation of community programs in the transition process. However, prisons and jails by their nature limit outsiders' access to the institutions, making it a challenge for community-based social service and treatment providers to serve incarcerated people. However, institutions can be community-friendly and invite social service agencies into the institution to work directly with offenders being prepared for release. The community agencies could provide contact information and written literature about services to both staff and inmates. Community treatment providers that contract to deliver institution-based treatment are in an ideal position to also help with transition efforts. Similarly, corrections agencies can enlist contractors to provide case management and other transitional services.
