Comprehensive Framework for Paroling Authorities in an Era of Evidence-Based Practice

A “framework that identifies the characteristics and competencies that paroling authorities must have to be effective in implementing evidence-based practices in the context of transition programs and services” is presented (p.8). These sections follow an executive summary: introduction; the impact of history on current reform efforts; the key elements of the parole process-the institutional, reentry, community, and discharge phases; the foundation of system effectiveness-evidence-based practice, organizational development, and collaboration; moving forward; and conclusion. An appendix lists intermediate and process measures for implementation.
