This Outline is about Working in the office of a state senator as a staffer and there have been charges of abuse at the local jail which has caught the attention of the senator. The Senator who is focusing on the state correctional system which is a constant target of criticism for an increasingly vocal number of civil libertarian groups is speaking before the state bar association with intentions on addressing ways that the correctional system might be improved. A detailed outline on correctional theory along with suggestions on ways to implement some non-traditional theories of corrections will be evident in this correctional theory outline. In reviewing Mass Incarceration there is often criticism of simple warehousing of human beings who are convicted of crimes. If it is a violent criminal there is a need to safeguard society from future criminal acts of a person who is convicted of the most heinous offenses. This outline will describe what the competing theories of corrections are and if they are prevalent in today’s system or not. A review of how the goals of punishment and rehabilitative strategies differ will also be shown. This outline will also show whether or not there is specific data to support one particular approach over another and go over two non-traditional correctional approaches while addressing the goals of each. My own personal opinion will be given on whether I feel the approach is effective, if they are more cost effective than conventional incarceration, and why I believe so with support for my answers. There will also be data on rates of recidivism and a completion of academic and vocational programs within the prison system. The thesis for this outline is “Correctional Theory is no longer a Theory” (AIU Online, 2009)
