Abstract: Research spanning some 20 years indicates the effectiveness of correctional programs is contingent upon several principles, including the risk, need and responsivity or intervention principles. Dr. Latessa summarizes these three principles through discussing prior research in this area, how to target them in correctional programming and lessons learned from the research. He also discusses some recent evidence regarding program characteristics necessary for recidivism reduction.
