You have been hired as a consultant/adviser to address the issues related to the criminal justice system, covered this week. Please take 1/3 of your post to summarize the major social problems presented and why these are occurring [psychologically speaking]. Then, for the other 2/3 of your post, please suggest ways that these issues can be addressed, as informed by psychology/psychological findings. Don’t just move article by article and give a summary. You are being asked to read all of the materials and synthesize them into a “brief” – a short summary of the issues – for those that hired you. Additionally, for your suggestions/recommendations, please don’t simply summarize the ideas others have given in your readings; come up with your own ideas as informed by what you’ve read. Make sure to support your ideas with evidence – why are you making these suggestions? What are they based on? Which findings suggest these ideas could help? Please use all of the resources for this week in your post and use in-text citations.
Finally, at the end of your post, in a separate sentence [titled – “Remaining Question”], please post a question that you had, based on what you’d read. You should think of this as a discussion question you are proposing [not just a question about something in an article].
