Evidence Based Practices Revisited

Nov 7, 2010

Although referenced in other  articles on this site, this seems like an appropriate time to reprint (and reaffirm our support for) the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) sponsored report,“Implementing Evidence-Based Principles in Community Corrections: The Principles of Effective Intervention” authored by the Crime and Justice Institute. This brief, but critical work (19 pages) lays out the critical principles of evidence based practices that apply to those returning to our communities from jails and prisons.

A companion monograph on the same subject was authored by Peggy Burke and published by NIC in August of 2008 , “TPC Reentry Handbook:  Implementing the NIC Transition from Prison to the Community Model.”
