According to the report, what are the goals of boot-camp programs? - Boot camps had three main goals: reducing recidivism, reducing prison populations, and reducing costs What are some of the concerns regarding female boot-camp attendees? - Female inmates are more likely to have children and be the sole parent for those children. Boot camps often restricted, or even banned, visitation, creating difficult situations for mothers and their children. Also, the programs did not teach parenting skills. - ■ Female inmates are more likely to have a history of physical or sexual abuse. Although female inmates were four to five times more likely than male inmates to have been victims of physical or sexual abuse, most camps had no programs to help them cope with or avoid victimization. Derogatory boot camp tactics tended to retraumatize domestic violence victims. - ■ Female inmates are more likely to have a different history and pattern of drug use than males. Most substance abuse treatment used therapies designed for males. - ■ Female inmates are more likely to have been unemployed before imprisonment. Boot camps did little to prepare women for employment after release. Female inmates at boot camps reported high stress levels, which may be why they tended to drop out of boot camp at a higher rate than male inmates. Stress stemmed from a physical training regimen designed for males; drill instructors’ “in your face” tactics; lack of other female participants, often leading to isolation within the camp; and cross-gender supervision.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
