Address why women offenders have specific needs in reentry planning. Studies indicate there is a strong correlation between women commit crimes and who have a history of trauma.
Review the “Who Benefits From Gender Responsive Treatment?” article in this week’s University Library Readings.
Answer the following questions in a paper of at least 700 words:
How could a correlation of past trauma contribute to a woman’s tendency to become an offender?
Why do women who have a prior history of abuse have a higher probability to become substance abusers?
How could poverty have an effect on women who use drugs or become offenders?
What are some factors to consider while reentry planning for women, as well as other diverse populations, who have been victims of prior abuse?
