Offender Research Project. A Handbook for Designing and Implementing Offender Programs.
Miner, Carol S.; And Others
A product of the Offender Research Project, this handbook is intended for use in designing and implementing offender programs. The first of six chapters explains the necessity and techniques for developing community and financial support for offender programs. Chapter 2 is a synopsis of the twelve model projects developed as a part of the research project. Each model project summary includes a statement of the problem, methods for implementation and evaluation, and objectives. Chapter 3 lists resource persons who may be contacted for project assistance, and chapter 4 addresses the theory and practice of project evaluation and project monitoring. Chapter 5 is a report of the findings of a survey (appended) administered to each of the twenty-two Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) sponsors in Florida. The report provides a description of CETA's structure, role in the community, and orientation to offenders' needs. Finally, chapter 6 presents a review of available literature concentrating on selected offender programs presently in operation. (FP)
