Imagine you work as a human services practitioner at a state prison. Your manager is frustrated that some of the practitioners are not spending enough time preparing their clients for re-entry. She has asked you to write a memo that explains the importance of planning for re-entry and key strategies that support and promote the success of offenders who prepare to integrate back into society. In your memo, focus on the LGBT population.
Write a memo, responding to each of the following questions
Why is it important to start the re-entry process early with offenders while they are still incarcerated? Identify the key components of the re-entry process.
Why is it important to identify offenders as clients instead of offenders during the re-entry process?
What evidence supports this approach during re-entry planning? Focus on assessment-driven re-entry planning procedures.
