Inmates who we define as young adult offenders represent
approximately 30% of the correctional centre population. They have the highest
incidence of self-harm, are more likely to re-offend and are responsible for
43% of all offences committed in custody. If you work with young adult
offenders in the correctional environment or in the community you need
knowledge of the typical profile and special needs of this high-risk group.
This online program will provide you with the wide range of skills and
attitudes that you need to confidently manage and support positive behavioural
change. Completion of this course will result in a Statement of Training.
