Contemporary Correctional Theory and Practice

CORR 1382

To effectively deal with complex correctional populations, students require a grounding in the theory and research that informs contemporary correctional practice. The face of corrections has been changing over the past decade years and involves more offenders with complex needs, shorter stays in institutions, increased emphasis on rehabilitation and behaviour change, and an increased focus on ethical and professional conduct by staff. Contemporary correctional theory and research are based on the principles of restorative justice, risk, need and responsivity, as well as practices that emphasize behaviour change, reintegration, dynamic supervision, leadership and ethics. This course provides students with the necessary knowledge and background to understand how these concepts apply in general and to complex populations.


The minimum passing grade for this course is 55%.
