Jail-Based Impact of Crime Intervention
Phase 2 RCT of Jail-Based Impact of Crime Intervention to Reduce Recidivism, Substance Abuse and HIV Risk Behavior

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether the Impact of Crime (IOC) group intervention with jail inmates reduces post-release recidivism, substance abuse, and HIV risk behavior.

This project imports social-personality theory and research on moral emotions and cognitions to the applied problems of crime, substance abuse, and HIV risk behavior. The primary aim of this study, a Phase 2 Randomized Clinical Trial (RCT) of the restorative justice-inspired Impact of Crime (IOC) group intervention, is to examine the efficacy of treatment and to determine if changes in moral emotions and cognitions serve as mechanisms of action, explaining the impact of treatment involvement on reductions in post-release recidivism, substance abuse, and HIV risk behavior.
