Jennifer Skeem and Devon Polaschek review research on effective interventions for high-risk individuals that can guide effective justice policy and practice.

The American criminal justice system is making a positive shift from mass incarceration towards alternatives to incarceration. In their article, "High risk, not hopeless: Correctional intervention for people at risk for violence", Jennifer Skeem and Devon Polaschek review research on effective interventions with high-risk individuals that can be implemented not only in communities but more specifically correctional institutions. Dr. Skeem and Dr. Polaschek discuss the importance of using evidence based practice to guide effective justice policy and practice for high-risk individuals.
