Treatment and Rehabilitation of Offenders - Specialized Training for Policy and Decision Makers

Policy and decision makers in the fields of criminal justice, social services, addiction treatment and mental health often face a difficult dilemma - they make important decisions often having limited knowledge about specific issues and the state of the art science. Often they have to rely on advisors and aids, and this is typically helpful if such advisors are available and there is sufficient time for the decision making. This training course is specifically designed for policy and decision makers and presents a brief comprehensive review of the current science translated into the language of policy making. The curriculum was developed by the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime and has been tested in multiple training events for policy makers from Central and South East Asia, Western Europe, Japan, Latin America and the US.
