The offenders included were the subjects of investigations by the Investigations Branch of the CSC and were residing in CSC's institutions or in the community during the incident
A qualitative study of self-injurious behaviour in women offenders by Jenelle Power( )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) may be defined as the deliberate destruction of body tissue without suicidal intent and for purposes not socially sanctioned and may include behaviours such as cutting, ligature use, burning, hitting, swallowing sharp or indigestible objects, inserting and removing objects, and head banging. NSSI poses a serious threat to the safety and well-being of offenders and staff within the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC). To more effectively treat and prevent NSSI in offenders, a greater understanding of the origins and motivations of NSSI is required. The purpose of this study, therefore, is to analyse the motivations and emotions associated with engaging in NSSI as described by women offenders. Fifty-six federally sentenced women from seven institutions participated in semi-structured interviews that were designed to assess their history of non-suicidal self-injury

Self-injurious behaviour : a review of the literature and implications for Corrections by Jenelle Power( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This literature review was undertaken to determine what is currently known about self-injurious behaviour (SIB) and what gaps exist in order to inform future research and intervention strategies in federal institutions. Initially, definitional issues associated with SIB are examined, followed by a review of the nature of SIB (i.e., what types of behaviours individuals engage in) and previous attempts to develop classification systems. Next, available research on prevalence rates, correlates, and theories of the motivation for engaging in SIB are presented. Finally, implications for CSC and future directions for SIB research are proposed
A matter of faith : a gathering of Aboriginal christians( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A growing number of Aboriginal communities have looked to their traditional values and spirituality to address the impact of serious crimes and have established healing processes to address the needs of victims, offenders and families. The Aboriginal Corrections Policy Unit, Public Safety Canada, has worked with a number of Aboriginal communities to explore offender and victim treatment within a community healing context. Given the number of Aboriginal communities that have embraced Christian beliefs, the Aboriginal Corrections Policy Unit believed it was important to explore existing or potential healing and restorative processes in and for those communities. This report presents a selection of the wide-ranging views put forward at the Gathering. It has attempted to place those discussions in a framework of six chapters that will inform the reader and, hopefully, elicit further discussion and thought.--Includes text from document
Homicide, sex, robbery and drug offenders in federal corrections : an end-of-2008 review by Marsha Axford( )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the challenges confronting all Correctional Services in recent years is the effective management of offender populations. It has long been recognized that the demographic and offence-related characteristics of these populations influence institutional conduct as well as the safe transition of offenders to the community. As the characteristics of offenders and populations change, it creates the need to develop or refine correctional interventions to best respond to the needs and risks of these offenders. For example, an increase in the number of offenders admitted to prison with drug-related offences may indicate the need to develop and offer more addictions or substance-abuse programs. This study provides an overview of offenders convicted of homicide, sexual, robbery and drug-related offences on December 31, 2008. Of the 22,445 offenders under the supervision of the Service on that date, 5,540 had been convicted of a homicide offence, 3,154 were sexual offenders, 6,276 had a conviction for robbery, and 6,433 offenders had been convicted of a drug-related offence

A preliminary investigation of institutional outcomes for LifeLine participants by Shannon Gottschall( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offenders serving life sentences comprise one-fifth of the total offender population and this number has grown by more than 20% over the past ten years. Lifers are a unique subset of the general offender population and are subject to lengthy periods of incarceration and indefinite supervision upon release. Despite their growing numbers, very few programs or interventions address the particular needs of Lifers. LifeLine is a national program that provides in-reach and community services to offenders serving life or indeterminate sentences. Previous research on the efficacy of LifeLine has been mostly qualitative in nature and though the program was viewed positively by those involved, there has been little in the way of quantitative investigation to-date. The current study focused on the analysis of existing quantitative data in order to demonstrate the impact of LifeLine on institutional outcomes

Veterans in Canadian correctional systems by Philippe Bensimon( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have comparatively little knowledge about the presence of military veterans within the Correctional Service of Canada's (CSC or the Service) offender population. This exploratory study examined the prevalence of veterans in American, British, and Canadian correctional systems. Research findings from other nations suggest that the number of imprisoned veterans closely matches their representation in the general population. As about one in thirty Canadians have served in the armed forces, it was possible that veterans accounted for approximately three percent of CSC offenders
