M4_A1 Probation and Parole.
Assignment 1: Possibilities and Probabilities
Offenders differ in their rehabilitation needs as well as an understanding of how to achieve them. This being the case, different theories of offender rehabilitation apply to the offenders. Although there are several different theoretical models for rehabilitation in probation and parole, there are three basic theories to address offender rehabilitation: the Psychoanalytic theory, the Reality therapy, and the Behavior or Learning theory.
By the due date assigned, in a minimum of 300 words, post to the Discussion Area your response to the following:
Considering all the theoretical models of the rehabilitation role covered in Module 4, which model best explains the relationship between human behavior, crime, and rehabilitation? Explain your reasoning.
Which model do you find the least compelling? Why?
Through the end of the module, review the postings of your classmates. Respond to at least one of your classmates by posing a discerning question, making an observation, commenting on a novel idea or concept, or by sharing an experience or insight you gained from their discussion post.
