Programs assist an individual to confront their criminal behaviour, develop a pro-social attitude and implement positive life changes.
Community Corrections Tasmania offers a range of programs and interventions for individuals on community based orders to lower their risk of re-offending.
We assess individuals and provide programs according to the key principles of the RNR model:
The Risk Principle: This principal matches the level of treatment to the level of risk. High treatment intensity is reserved for high and medium risk individuals; as low risk cases have a lower probability for further offending.
The Need Principle: To have the greatest effect on re-offending, rehabilitation programs should attempt to address needs that are directly related to the offending.
Responsivity: Is where the treatment mode is matched to individual characteristics, such as motivation and willingness to change. Responsivity entails delivering programs in a way which an individual can relate to and understand. This principal also cater for any barriers to participation, such as low literacy levels.
Current Community Corrections programs include:
- The EQUIPS Suite of Programs
- Parole Awareness
- Family Violence Offender Intervention Program
- Sober Driver Program
- Court Mandated Diversion Program
