ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS :Discussion: Practices In Community Corrections

Individuals transitioning from an institutional correctional setting to a community correctional setting may have different needs than those individuals entering an institutional setting. In this assignment, you will review a case study, assess the individual based on the information provided, and propose evidence-based practices for helping this individual transition back into society.

Imagine you have been asked to create a transition plan for an individual transitioning out of an institutional correctional facility and into society. You will be presenting your transition plan to your supervisor in a detailed report that includes research as a rationale for your plan.

Review the Case of Robert (attached).

Write a 800- to 1,050-word (DO NOT GO OVER WORD COUNT) report with your plan to assist the individual in this case study, in which you:

Describe why community correctional assessment is necessary for this individual.
Use a community correctional assessment to determine the needs of this individual.
Describe evidence-based practices for working with this individual to address his specific needs as he or she re-enters society.
Include a minimum of 4 sources including McClam and Woodside provided in attachments

Format your report according to APA guidelines.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
