Detention Houses: A Future-Oriented Solution to Old Problems

The efficacy and efficiency of prisons have been questioned for decades. Research has not only shown that little or no positive impact is to be expected from imprisonment (Martinson, 1974; Council of Europe 1987), but also that imprisonment may have serious harmful effects – in social, psychological and financial terms (Sykes, 1958; Crewe, 2011). Nevertheless, detention rates remain high, which is also true for recidivism rates. In order to respond to this penal paradox, the Belgian non-profit organization “The Houses” has reconceived the idea of imprisonment, meeting both the principles underlying the Belgian Prison Act of 2005 and the principles of evidence-based practice. According to the Belgian Prison Act, the […]

Criminal Risk Management in Probation: The effectiveness of Individual Cognitive-Behavioural Program “One to one” in Lithuania

The “One to one” (OTO) is a criminal behaviour treatment programme based on cognitive-behavioural methods and targeting medium to medium/high risk of re-offending cases. It is comprised of three different modules: violence, substance abuse, and general offending prevention. The results, presented during the CRS-2017, are from the study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of the OTO programme implemented in Lithuanian Probation Service within the period of seven years. Although the effectiveness of correctional interventions may be defined in different ways, in this particular study it was operationalized as both individual changes in psychosocial functioning and re-offending rates. The study involved 116 male probationers whose age ranged from 17 to 67 […]

How Do Detainees Experience Dutch Prisons: A Large-Scale Survey-Study

Each year, approximately 40,000 adults enter the Dutch penitentiary system, and remain under the care of the Dutch Custodial Institutions Agency (DCIA, part of the Ministry of Security and Justice). The DCIA considers it important to create humane and stimulating living conditions and has therefore commissioned the Life in Custody study, a survey study carried out by the Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology at Leiden University. Each person detained in the Netherlands in Februari and March 2017 can take part in this large-scale study. The aims of the project are to improve our understanding of staff and prisoner perceptions and experiences of prison life, as well as the effects […]

Nature-Based Health Promotion – A Valuable Tool for Supporting Female Prisoners with Complex Needs

Health is a fundamental human right and especially for individuals held in custody of the state. However, prison policies often overlook the specific and special needs of women and their health. Many women in prison have alarmingly high levels of mental illness and drug or alcohol dependence as well as histories of sexual and physical abuse and violence. The needs of women in prison are complex and challenging and can make addressing their health needs particularly difficult. Women represent a small percentage of the total prison population however, their numbers are increasing. This presentation explores the benefits of engaging with nature and its impact on health and well-being drawing upon […]

The Evaluation of Central Registration Points (CRPs) for Substance Users in Belgian Prisons

People detained in correctional settings often suffer from health and/or psychological problems, including substance abuse. Addressing these needs is a priority within the M19 European Union, also because substance abuse treatment for detainees may reduce drug use and recidivism. Up until 2016, Central Registration Points (CRP) for substance users were operational in all Belgian prisons. These CRPs acted as a liaison between the prison and substance abuse treatment outside prison. In this presentation, we summarize the results of the policy-orientated research “Process and outcome study on prison-based registration points in Belgium” (PROSPER) – carried out on behalf of Federal Science Policy (BELSPO) with co-financing of the Federal Public Service of […]
