objectives of vocational rehabilitation of all members of society in all categories, including the development of specialized training programs for the integration of prisoners. To talk about this topic, we will divide the beneficiaries into two parts.
Let us define it with the people who have completed the execution of the punishment, and these people will not talk about them in detail, meanwhile they will be ordinary citizens who have completed rehabilitation during the punishment period. Only simplified programs will be developed to benefit from them and their experiences in society, whether psychological or professional.
In this section, which is the main focus of attention, the rehabilitation, training of inmates who are still in the period of punishment, by giving them a new opportunity after they lost their way and their freedom . Sociologists confirm that providing prisoners with meaningful work, and training in work techniques that are compatible with their qualifications ; all lead to appear new values for them in keeping with social controls and standards.
Two-thirds of prisoners re-offend within three years of leaving prison. This is often done with more serious and violent crimes, but this is not a fixed rule and prisoners can be rehabilitated to start their lives again in society, by continuing education, training and rehabilitation inside prison : it will be as a new opportunity for life
The re-education, rehabilitation and intensive training program for high-risk prison inmates helps to reduce the level of violence in prison to zero within a year. Obtaining a vocational training certificate during the prison period is the only program that has proven to be 100% effective, over the years or decades, in preventing a return to crime because of the benefits and rewards that will accrue to the inmate, which we will review later, and most importantly, that participation in this Training and rehabilitation for less than four months reduced the frequency of violence after leaving prison by 83 percent, compared to a similar group in a conventional prison.
Also, educational and psychological programs will be developed, in partnership with the concerned ministries, whose role is to rehabilitate the inmate before leaving after the expiration of the period for how to coexist with society, especially since the superficial view
For some groups in society, they will refuse to deal with it, causing them to suffer multiple psychological crises. Therefore, the principle of tolerance, forgiveness and temporary acceptance of the current situation must be strengthened until they can adapt to the situation.
Several studies have confirmed that when former prisoners, especially young people, return to society deprived of the skills needed by the labor market, one behavior, negative or positive one, necessarily leads to a series of consecutive similar behaviors, as a result of despair from the situation in which they live, which often leads to committing new crimes. Therefore, rehabilitating prisoners, especially young people, professionally, protects them from relapse. Those who join the training and job rehabilitation inside the prison increase their chances of obtaining work abroad after the expiry of the punishment. For a person who has recently returned to society, the self-esteem and sense of accomplishment derived from hard work play a major role to reduce criminal behavior.
Initiatives have been established in the majority of Arab and foreign countries, some of them with the support of governments, with the aim of helping prisoners to open up to the outside world because of their conviction that their deviation is the result of certain social and educational conditions, in which society bears its share of responsibility, and therefore it must work to assist the administration in the field of care and rehabilitation of prisoners, and below we review together the project
Description of the project.
