I am just back from …. , , that is, after participating in this terrific seminar sponsored by the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction on “Faith Based Programming, Reentry and Recidivism.” In addition to being warmly treated by the audience during my presentation, I gained lots and lots of insights from my co-panelists and from a fascinating presentation given by Steven McFarland, Director of the Task Force for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives for the US Justice Department.
Among other things I learned in my sojourn was that there are so many institutions and organizations with information and resources on an array of corrections and reentry issues. How example, this webpage from the DOJ Task Force has a number of interesting and informative publication. Likewise, the Institute for Excellence in Justice (icon above) has this great knowledge bank with various helpful resources for both academics and folks working in the field.
