9780078111501: Probation, Parole, and Community-Based Corrections: Supervision, Treatment, and Evidence-Based Practices (Connect, Learn, Succeed)

More than 8 million adults and juveniles are under correctional supervision in the United States, and even those who are confined will eventually be supervised by professionals in the field of community-based corrections. The first scholars to do so, Gerald Bayens and John Smykla explain in this first edition of Probation, Parole, and Community-Based Corrections, that community-based corrections is more than just programs in the community. Utilizing the latest data, up-to-the-minute news, profiles of professionals working in the field, policy discussions, pedagogical tools, and international perspectives, the authors have created an exciting book for students learning about community-based corrections.
