The effectiveness of interventions in correctional systems depends on whether they are designed based on the needs and profiles of the inmates. For example, the risk-need-responsivity model has been widely used as a way of examining prison-based interventions in terms of the specific requirements of inmates. The model states that any training program should be designed based on whether incarcerated individuals are at risk of reoffending (risk), whether they display criminogenic tendencies (need), and if the intervention is helping them change their behavior (responsivity). Equally important is the process of transitioning from incarceration to life outside prison and leading a crime-free and productive life. The process includes rehabilitation in prison settings, support during the time of release, and follow-up after release.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
