This course is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of community visits, which include visits to private homes, group homes, schools and places of work. Students will be provided with the knowledge and skills that will allow them to conduct safe and fruitful visits, which can lead to effective and efficient supervision of clients in the community. Currently in Canadian practice, a record number of offenders are being given community dispositions instead of prison sentences. The overall management of these convicted offenders in the community has become a huge problem for many jurisdictions. Despite the increase of offenders in the community, resources and tools to manage these large and difficult populations have not increased. This course will look at what tools are needed and how can they be implemented to provide caregivers and community supervisors the support needed.
