Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

An educational forum for social workers regarding postrelease sex offenders: A grant writing project
by Parks, Polly, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 49; 1481758
Abstract (Summary)

Sexual offending is a social problem that has captivated the attention of the public. It is a problem that arouses a great deal of anger and passion in the public. This attitude is exacerbated by not having enough funding for programs that support sex offenders when they reintegrate into the community. Postrelease programs have been shown to prevent recidivism, giving offenders the support they need to successfully adjust to living in the community and helping them maintain a healthy and productive lifestyle and increasing safety in the nation's communities. This project provides a proposal to seek a grant for such a program of support in the form of an educational forum for social service professionals.
