THIS ISSUE IN BRIEF
Crime Control Strategies and Community Change-Reframing the Surveillance vs. Treatment Debate                              3
David Farabee's recent monograph Rethinking Rehabilitation challenges much of the theory, research, and policy associated with
liberal offender treatment strategies. The authors argue that Farabee's control-based corrections model ignores the larger issue of
community change and unreasonably jettisons treatment-driven corrections policy.

Restorative Circles, part of a pilot reentry program in Hawaii beginning in 2005, help inmates understand that their actions have impacts

beyond prison, and acknowledge the strengths they can use to get there.
