Offender Rehabilitation Programs

SUPPORT FOR PRISONERS AND OFFENDERS

Why work with Offenders?

People who have committed violent crimes and exhibited anti social behaviour are, whether we like it or not, still part of our community. Very few people stay in prison permanently.

Taking responsibility for one’s actions is not necessarily something that people learn by going to prison – however, it is a vital aspect of our programs.

When a person comes out of prison there is no guarantee of their rehabilitation- they have simply been punished; so one of the concepts of the program – goal setting and changing behaviours to get different outcomes – deals with these issues.

Our raises concepts that are vital to reintegrationinto the community, such as encouraging empathy for victims, encouraging personal initiative and individual goal setting.

Workshops and Programs for Correctional Centres

R Program (for correctional staff and inmates)

Our aim is to achieve positive attitude changes through education at all levels of community. We believe that prison inmates need to be included in this goal, as they are part of our community.

The R Program (Responsibility – Rehabilitation – Reintegration)was designed out of a belief that people who have committed crimes need to accept responsibility for their actions, the consequences of their actions and their victim’s suffering, before they can be rehabilitated.

This constructively confrontation program is available in two formats, for both inmates and staff. It has the potential to challenge negative belief systems and motivate individuals towards positive change.

A Certificate of attendance is given to those who participate fully in the workshop.
