ByRonen Ziv
Pages 36

Chapter 7 describes the nature of the debate between the RNR and the GLM. This debate, which followed the emergence of the GLM, provides an outlook on the boundaries of the RNR model as the dominant treatment approach. Specifically, this debate raises important questions about the purpose of changing convicted offenders through a planned intervention. Thus, the discussion in Chapter 7 conveys the nature of the dispute between the two models and shows the potential points of agreement. This chapter compares both models’ theoretical and correctional frameworks and reveals the extent to which these models are incompatible or compatible approaches to offender treatment.
