So last night was interesting. It is quite difficult to use these practices with some of the offenders that I work with. It seems like they just don’t care and it really is hard to get them to understand that they have a choice in their actions. Either they can follow the rules of the prison or they can get a “charge”. A charge is basically a written report where there are penalties that are dealt with inside the prison such as a $12 fine (which is a lot for somebody making $0.27 an hour) or cell restriction where they have to stay in their cell. It appears that a lot of offenders don’t realize that they are punishing themselves by choosing not to obey the rules. I will write more based on my research of evidence-based practices and applying it at work.
