Noll, Thomas; Borchard, Bernd; Rosseger, Astrid; Endrass, Jérôme; Habermeyer, Elmar; Gonçalves, Leonel C (2020). Professionals’ Attitudes Towards the Importance of Core Principles for the Mental Health Treatment of Offenders in Correctional Facilities. The Prison Journal, 100(5):603-616.

Abstract

The efficacy of offender therapy depends on professionals’ sharing common attitudes regarding basic principles of offender treatment. Research in this area is lacking. This study explored attitudes of 264 professionals involved in or collaborating with the largest correctional system in Switzerland. The very encouraging findings are that the core ideas and general principles have been assimilated due to the long-lasting collaboration between professionals and institutions, as well as the alignment of standardized methods of intervention.
