Using 100 words or more, please respond to the following post about the most compelling subject in Community Corrections:
One of the most compelling topics I learned in this class was specialty programs. There are so many helpful programs out there that people can utilize. There is the Felony Alcohol Intervention Program and the First Offender Drug Program for persons with alcohol or drug problems. There are the Mental Health Diversion Program and the Other Behavioral Intervention with Assault Non-family (OBI WAN) Programs for persons with mental illness and behavioral issues.
Also, there is the Youthful Offender Diversion Alternative (YODA) for adolescent offenders. The Domestic Violence Diversion Program and the Reaching Independence through Self-Empowerment (RISE) Program are good programs to help people get their lives back after a crime. There is even a Veterans Court Diversion Program that helps with Veterans affairs.
I enjoyed participating in the discussions because it helped me understand the subject matter better and I liked learning how other people felt towards the topics at hand. Nothing in this course was unclear. Everything was explained in detail. Nothing needed further clarification.
I do not think that anything could have yielded additional valuable information. The PowerPoint presentation was a bit of a struggle for me. I do not have a lot of experience with them and I always wonder if I am doing them correctly.
