Punishment and Rehabilitation

Module code: CR2008 (double module)

Many different approaches to punishment can be seen across the globe from the death penalty or life imprisonment, to yoga in prison and unpaid work. Each of these approaches can be justified in their own way.

This module will give you the opportunity to explore these approaches and evaluate their effectiveness in terms of re-offending rates, rehabilitation and other ‘successful’ outcomes. It will include contemporary issues, such as the availability of drugs in prison, and provide a historical context for the way in which we currently deliver punishment. This module will develop your skills in presenting relevant information and concepts to a variety of audiences in a clear and logical manner.
