Progressive Prisons

Developments in incarceration help to enhance rehabilitation

Implications - Some argue that the punitive process involved in today's imprisonment often inhibits inmates' personal growth and rehabilitation, forcing them into an environment where they are treated poorly and receive inadequate guidance and treatment. To combat this, some prisons are introducing new processes and concepts -- whether it pertains to the prison's environment, disciplinary processes or new opportunities for inmates to learn and apply new skills -- to improve a prisoner's lifestyle and help them become members of society once again.
