Pages 26

Chapter 5 introduces the Good Lives Model (GLM) of offender rehabilitation and its theoretical framework. The GLM has been advanced since the early 2000s as an alternative overarching theoretical framework of correctional rehabilitation. Chapter 5 discusses the theoretical perspectives that informed the development of the GLM, and the GLM’s assumptions that reflect ideas about the purpose of offender rehabilitation and its essential components.
