Bell, EJ and Guenther, John, 'Breakfree': a rural community based crime prevention program for young women, The Salvation Army, ASBN: 978-1-86295-60 (2010) [Consultants Report]


This community-based evaluation was designed to collect data about the answers to three key questions. These questions relate to each of the three objectives of a rural and regional crime prevention program involving multiple community organisations at three sites across Tasmania. 1. How well has the program developed and implemented a collaborative practice model for addressing the needs of young female offenders? 2. How well has the program identified and addressed the criminogenic risks and needs of young female offenders via a collaborative case management approach? 3. How wellhas the program developed and implemented a cognitive skills program for young female offenders? The evaluation method involved collecting qualitative data from clients, as well as quantitative and qualitative data from stakeholders, supplemented by the categorical data from the program youth workers. The method was informed by quali-quantitative case-based approaches for capturing causal complexity in small-N situations.
