Abstract

The author argues that a major challenge of Maruna, Porter and Carvalho’s paper and other work detailing similar research, lies not only in its questioning of how probation work should be undertaken, but also of how it should actually be conceived. In particular, he considers that this body of work undermines the correctionalist paradigm which often dominates current interpretations of effective practice.
