For this Assignment, you will be provided with a scenario in which you are a correctional administrator in the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Your warden instructs you to develop a multi-faceted, evidence-based approach to reducing recidivism and improve institutional behavior for inmates. The Assignment requires you to create a PowerPoint presentation of approximately 10 slides. Be sure to address ethical issues in corrections when researching and conceptualizing your evidence-based approaches, and consider them again when creating your PowerPoint presentation.
Scenario: You are a correctional administrator in the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). You have over 20 years of experience in the BOP at various prisons. Your next assignment is going to be very difficult. You are being assigned to a federal prison that houses the worst-behaved federal inmates. This facility is known as a “SMU,” or Segregated Management Unit. All 1,100 prisoners have been placed at the SMU for serious infractions/offenses while at other prisons. The recidivism rate for the SMU inmates is twice as high when compared to all other federal prison inmates. In addition, SMU inmates commit a higher number of infractions while incarcerated, such as assaults on staff and other inmates. You have been asked by the SMU Warden to develop a multi-faceted, evidence-based approach to reducing recidivism and improving institutional behavior for the SMU inmates. Your plan should include three evidence-based practices. Several resources have been provided to assist you identifying the evidence-based practices.
