Library Research Assignment


There are 2 general models to consider when discussing treatment of offenders. First is the medical model, which focuses on psychological evaluation and creating a treatment plan that corresponds with the evaluation.


The second model is known as the psycho/social/behavioral model.
This model uses several methods, including a risk assessment and a
thorough treatment prescription process. The psycho/social/behavioral
model looks at all aspects of the offender's life.


Compare and contrast the medical and psychological/sociological/behavioral models.
