In 3-4 pages, discuss the impact that Psychological treatment has had on the field of corrections and society’s view of offender rehabilitation within the last 10 years.
Note that within the correctional field, psychological treatment refers to the following:
Psychological treatment or counseling is a program administered to all inmates to help them with creating new perceptions to life. It is argued that the primary reason behind advice is to reduce recidivism. This is true since behavior change will eliminate the thought of recommitting the offense they were arrested for committing In administering this kind of treatment, the offender characteristics are first examined before providing the counseling. Psychological treatment is also aimed at helping offenders create a balance with their great relations, comprehend, and overcome their internal and external conflict through creating an accurate social cognitive and self-understanding (Crow, 2001). The counseling also makes the inmates reconcile with the law governing their interaction with other members of the society.
