Evaluation of the intervention theory, implementation and outcomes of the training for adult prisoners (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Choose Change is a training course for adult prisoners. The purpose of the training programme is to get participants to reflect on their lives, on the question of whether they want to follow a different path after their period of detention and whether they are willing to stop committing offences. The programme is being run in prisons (including pre-trial detention) throughout the country. The target audience is all detainees with at least three weeks sentence to serve from the start of the programme (except for prisoners with serious addiction or psychiatric problems and those with an unlawful presence status). The training programme is not aimed at people who have no motivation whatsoever to participate. The programme consists of six sessions. The training programme may be given individually, although preferably in a group setting consisting of no more than twelve participants, and led by one or two coaches.
