Promoting an Interdisciplinary Understanding of Obstacles to Success in Re-Entry.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Each year in the United States, hundreds of thousands of offenders leave institutional settings and attempt to transition into society. Social work practitioners will interact with these citizens or their families, yet few opportunities exist for social workers to explore criminal justice issues and understand barriers to successful reentry. Continued education is necessary to inform social work practice on these issues. One innovative approach is with simulation, where participants step into the role of a recently released offender. This paper focuses on the use of simulation-based learning to provide experiential learning to social work practitioners around the issue of offender reentry.
