Foreseen Role For Occupational Therapy Rehabilitation In Correctional Facilities

Abstract

Prolonged occupational deprivation impacts an offender’s ability to reintegrate successfully into their community. Occupational Therapists can create programs for offenders to aid in preparation for reintegration, create support networks, develop independently living and vocational skills; in turn these programs can decrease recidivism.
What is the role of occupational therapy in correctional facilities, facilitating community reintegration to reduce recidivism?
