According to the Lizman, Matthews, and Reyes (2014) in What Works? Short-Term, In-Custody Treatment Programs, there are a number of risk-needs-responsivity model programs that have shown significant promise to effect real change in long-term offender rehabilitation. However, in this article, the authors are more concerned with the successful application of such programs inside short-term correctional settings, such as jails or detention centers.
After reviewing the merits of the article, use proper APA format and at least 3 academic sources to write a 4–6-page response that focuses on the overall effectiveness of correctional rehabilitation.

  • Select 3 of the following program types, and discuss the effectiveness of these specific correctional rehabilitation programs:
    • Cognitive behavioral therapy
    • Educational and vocational programs
    • Substance and alcohol abuse treatment
    • Faith-based programs
    • Mental illness treatment programs
  • Provide an example of each type of program currently being used in correctional facilities.
  • How is the risk-needs-responsivity model applied to the 3 types of programs that you selected?
  • What are the determining factors in assessing the effectiveness of these programs, including the limitations?
