Course Components:
The treatment and management of the criminal offender is an enormous challenge for the criminal justice system. The case processing, supervision, assessment, and treatment of individuals who manifest antisocial behavior patterns calls for a special understanding of the criminal justice system and the motivating factors that drive criminal behavior. Professionals in the field of criminology, criminal justice, sociology, psychology and social work need training in effective and evidence-based programs, treatment models, and supervision strategies to maximize the rehabilitation of offenders. Adherence to principles of effective practice reduces criminal recidivism and increases public safety while achieving the goals of the justice system. This course is also appropriate for any student who wishes to understand the factors associated with criminal behavior and effective approaches to primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of crime and delinquency.
