Summary
"Alternative Offender Rehabilitation and Social Justice addresses the contentious issue of how to improve rehabilitation in the criminal justice system. The contributors demonstrate that although there may be implementation challenges, alternative approaches to rehabilitation can succeed in developing pro-social attitudes and in improving mental, physical and spiritual health among youth and adult criminal offenders. A central theme throughout the book is the use of mindfulness as a foundational tool of self-reflexivity in both arts and physical engagement programming. Whether they include meditation, yoga, capoeira, drama, or creative writing, alternative rehabilitation programs give offenders an outlet for creative expression and therapy. The contributing authors explore the theoretical basis, mechanisms of implementation, benefits and drawbacks of a range of alternative rehabilitation modalities and challenge all to re-think social justice for offenders"--
