Life after Life Imprisonment

Catherine A Appleton

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter draws together the main arguments and lessons from earlier chapters. It identifies important elements of successful community reintegration for discretionary life-sentenced offenders. It also argues that that rehabilitation continues to have a prominent place within contemporary penal practice and that more weight should be given to both the role of the professional relationship and the importance of narrative identity change in the resettlement process of life-sentenced offenders.

Keywords:   reintegration, discretionary life-sentenced offenders, rehabilitation, penal practice, resettlement
