"The study provides a descriptive analysis of a sample of 185 randomly selected use of force incidents investigated by the Correctional Service of Canada's Incident Investigations Branch (CSC) between 2003 and 2007. The reports were stratified to equally represent each of the four years in the study and categorised into three groups based on types of institutions where the event occurred: treatment centres, non-treatment centre institutions, and institutions for women. The study examined how use of force was carried out within CSC, the circumstances that triggered the use of force, the type of offenders involved in the incidents, and how well staff complied with policies related to use of force"--Page iii
Waivers, postponements and withdrawals of parole reviews examining the characteristics of high volume users by Tammy Cabana( )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the challenges confronting both the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC or the Service) and the National Parole Board (NPB or the Board) is the large number of offenders who waive, postpone, or withdraw their reviews for day or full parole. These delays and cancellations, especially if made at the last moment, have time and resource implications for both the Board and the Service. A research report released in 2009 examined the characteristics of federal offenders who waived, postponed, and withdrew their application to appear before the NPB for a parole review (Cabana, Beauchamp, Emeno, & Bottos, 2009). One finding of particular interest suggested that a relatively small group of offenders--less than ten percent of the total number of offenders who had delayed or cancelled their parole hearings--accounted for almost one-quarter of all delays and cancellations. The purpose of this follow-up study was to further examine the group of offenders with multiple delays and cancellations so as to determine whether there were characteristics specific to this group that might help us better understand high volume users

Women who sexually offend : an assessment of the descriptive model of female sexual offending by Michael-Anthony Lutfy( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women who sexually offend represent less than 1% of the federal women offender population in Canada, and have received limited research attention. To assist in addressing this gap in the research, the current study was conducted to complement a previous profile of women sexual offenders and assessed the validity of the Descriptive Model of Female Sexual Offending with a Canadian sample"--Executive summary, p. iii
Assessment of the Women?s Violence Prevention Program by Sara Rubenfeld( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acknowledging a need for programming that would target the needs of repeatedly violent women offenders, the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) developed the Women?s Violence Prevention Program (WVPP). The goal of WVPP was to help women develop lifestyles that would be incompatible with violence and would, therefore, reduce their risk to re-offend violently. The current study is an assessment of the pilot phase of WVPP. The sample included 83 women who completed WVPP between February 2008 and November 2010. A matched comparison group of violent women offenders who did not participate in the program was identified for comparison purposes. The assessment included a pre- and post-program battery of psychometric measures, participant feedback questionnaires, an examination of immediate (e.g., institutional misconduct), and intermediate outcomes (e.g., type of release from custody)

Self-reported physical health status of incoming federally-sentenced women offenders by Amanda M Nolan( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To provide the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) with information on the prevalence of physical health conditions among newly-admitted federal inmates, a large-scale research project was undertaken to examine the self-reported physical health conditions of all incoming men and women offenders. The study on all federally-sentenced men offenders admitted during a six-month period was completed in 2013. For the current study, health data from 280 women offenders on new warrants of committal were recorded for a 13 month period (from April 2012 to May 2013). Rates of physical health conditions were examined and compared to those of the newly-admitted men offenders collected in the previous research study and to rates in the general Canadian female population (primarily based on the Canadian Community Health Survey) for conditions where these data were available"--Executive summary, p. iii

The impact of the Community Mental Health Initiative (CMHI) by Shanna Farrell MacDonald( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2005, Correctional Services Canada (CSC) implemented the Community Mental Health Initiative (CMHI) to prepare offenders with serious mental disorders for release into the community by strengthening the continuum of specialized mental health support and providing continuity of support from institutions to the community. In 2010, a study found preliminary evidence for the initiative?s effectiveness in reducing returns to custody and recidivism, but the follow-up period was brief. An update that examined outcomes for participants in the initiative over a more extended time period was required to evaluate the CMHI?s effectiveness in promoting the safe transition of offenders into the community and reducing recidivism. The following three CMHI treatment groups, based on the type of services received, were compared to offenders who met the criteria for participation in CMHI (n = 269), but were released prior to implementation of the initiative: (1) participated in clinical discharge planning (CDP; n = 65) only; (2) participated in community mental health specialist services (CMHS; n = 249) only; and (3) participated in both CDP and CMHS (n = 63)
Outcomes for sex offenders with concurrent substance abuse and mental health disorders by Geoff Wilton( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present study examines the profiles and institutional and community outcomes of sex offenders with mental health problems only, and those with concurrent substance abuse and mental health disorders. These two groups are compared to the general sex offender population. The results can assist administrators in determining the intervention needs of sex offenders and assist case managers in understanding the relative risk posed by sex offenders who have serious mental health and substance abuse problems
The needs of women offenders under community supervision by Jennie Mae Thompson( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current study surveyed institutional and community parole officers to ascertain the ways in which the community reintegration needs of federally sentenced women are currently being met, and where improvements could be made. Parole officers were selected because their direct contact with women offenders provides them with knowledge of the current reintegration needs of this group. Given the more exploratory nature of this study, no specific research questions were outlined; instead, the needs of women highlighted in the Revised National Community Strategy for Women Offenders were considered. The study focused on the following areas: women with children, release planning for women with complex needs, mental health services, employability and employment, residential accommodations, and partnerships with community organizations. Information regarding the needs of Aboriginal women and regional differences are discussed where differences were identified
Examen du recours à la force dans trois types d'établissements correctionnels by Steven Varrette( )

"L'étude présente une analyse descriptive d'un échantillon de 185 incidents de recours à la force, choisis au hasard, que la Direction des enquêtes sur les incidents du Service correctionnel du Canada (SCC) a examinés entre 2003 et 2007. Les rapports ont été stratifiés pour représenter également chacune des quatre années de l'étude et classés en trois groupes d'après les types d'établissements où les incidents ont eu lieu : centres de traitement, établissements pour hommes (qui ne sont pas des centres de traitement) et établissements pour femmes. L'étude a porté sur le mode de recours à la force au sein du SCC, les circonstances qui ont donné lieu au recours à la force, le genre de dé tenus impliqués dans les incidents et la mesure dans laquelle le personnel a réussi à se conformer aux politiques sur le recours à la force"--Page 3
