Summary: With overcrowded prisons and high reoffender rates, communities are increasingly concerned about not only punishing criminal offenders, but also rehabilitating them and addressing the social issues that contribute to crime. Problem Solving Courts explores a relatively new approach to criminal justice-one that can have a powerful impact on how offenders connect with their communities. Problem solving courts, born out of the 1980s drug court movements, are run by judges who, with law e
nforcement agents and social service providers, meet weekly with participants to assess progress. In this unique collaboration, JoAnn Miller and Judge Donald C. Johnson address the compelling need for alternatives to prisons, analyze problem solving courts in depth, and assess the impact that problem solving courts can have on ex-offenders and their communities.
