Example text

In discussions with Julie Horney, she and I have come to the view that when using the calendar or other demanding cognitive tasks such as responding to the simulations in our burglary research, there is evidence that the actual intellectual engagement in the task increases the validity of the response and decreases deliberate deception. Offenders become completely absorbed in the task with the researcher and often correct or refine reports of particular incidents or decisions they have made as their appreciation of the task in hand and memory of the period becomes more focused.

Selected’approaches have included ‘EarlyIntervention Programmes’, targeted at young offenders serving their first custodial sentence, and have also focused on the opportunities of the induction period for assessment of change in repeat offenders. For individuals, it has been considered important to maintain contacts with people outside the institution, such as partners or family and outside agencies, to discourage the process of identity-formation based upon the institution. Whereas long-term and adult prisoners require sentence planning, the young offender requires assistance with ‘life-planning’(Gunn &Wilson, 1999).

Adolescence, moreover, has received little attention in the prevention literature (Mrazek& Haggerty, 1994; Wolfe, 1994). In the previous section, I have discussed the important place for treatment, but also highlighted some of the limitations of this paradigm. Social problems cannot be ‘cured’by psychological answers, yet there is a desire to respond to the many young people at risk of becoming serious or persistent offenders(Galbraith, 2000; 26 MARK WILSON Barnardo’s Matrix, 2000). Even in an institutional setting, paradigms of prevention can provide a paradigm for effectivelypreventing today’syoung offender becoming tomorrow’s hardened criminal (Gunn & Wilson, 1999).
