There are many characteristics and dynamics at play that influence recidivism and other offender outcomes in reentry programs. Often the focus in correctional and reentry programs tends to be on offender characteristics and evidence-based assessment and programming. However, there are other factors that are often overlooked when considering the makeup of successful reentry. The purpose of this project was to identify the offender, staff and program characteristics that are more and less successful in terms of recidivism and to develop a new theoretical model and curriculum that incorporates those often-overlooked factors such as self-evaluative emotions, locus of control, program-implementation issues, staff characteristics, and relational and power dynamics between staff and offender. The theoretical model attempts to look at not just the factors themselves but the dynamics of those factors and their impact on offender success. Both the model and the curriculum are built upon the framework of restorative practices and utilize the literature review in this project to further develop a restorative approach to reentry.
