Reentry Process

Imagine you work as a human services practitioner at a state prison. Your manager is frustrated that some of the practitioners are not spending enough time preparing their clients for reentry. She has asked you to write a memo that explains the importance of planning for reentry and key strategies that support and promote the success of offenders who prepare to integrate back into society. In your memo, focus on the LGBT population.

Write a memo, responding to each of the following questions with a minimum of 350 words:

Why is it important to start the reentry process early with offenders while they are still incarcerated? Identify the key components of the reentry process.

Why is it important to identify offenders as clients instead of offenders during the reentry process?

What evidence supports this approach during reentry planning? Focus on assessment-driven reentry planning procedures.
