Evidence-Based Treatment Programming research study


In a research study published in 1974 commonly referred to as the “Nothing Works” report, Robert Martinson and his colleagues were presumed to have concluded that attempts at rehabilitation will always be unsuccessful. Current research on correctional programming indicates the opposite: Evidence-based approaches are successful in reducing recidivism.

For this Discussion, review the Learning Resources and identify the elements of a successful correctional rehabilitation program based on the corrections research.

Provide a d

escription of an effective evidence-based offender treatment or reentry program. Identify a minimum of three evidence-based elements of this program. Explain which element you think is most important and why.
