HELPING A LEOPARD TO CHANGE ITS SPOTS: HOW TO REHABILITATE OFFENDERS
LECTURE BY PROFESSOR ERICA BOWEN, UNIVERSITY OF WORCESTER
Date: 21 Nov 4pm for 4.15pm start, close at 5.30pm
Location: Herefordshire & Ludlow College, Hereford Campus, Folly Lane, Hereford, HR1 1LS
The issue of whether offenders can be successfully rehabilitated as part of criminal justice sentencing policy is controversial. The tension between punishment and rehabilitation as aims and outcomes of penal policy are ongoing, and the balance between these two aspects shifts depending on the political climate.
This public lecture will provide an overview of how penal policy concerning the rehabilitation of offenders has fluctuated over time, the factors that have influenced it, and how scientific evidence has, or has not, contributed to this debate.
We will take a closer look at current perspectives on working with offenders to prevent future reoffending, and what is known about the effectiveness of these approaches.
