What does a corrections counselor do?
A corrections counselor evaluates the progress of inmates in jails, prisons, and the community. Corrections counselors work to ensure that their clients do not re-offend upon release from a correctional facility and that they acclimate to society and smoothly as possible. A corrections counselor is also called a case manager or correctional treatment specialist. They can work in correctional facilities, as well as parole and probation offices.
What are the daily duties of a corrections counselor?
Corrections counselors provide inmates with coping and anger management skills through individual and group counseling sessions. Corrections counselors also oversee education and training programs. They work collaboratively with probation officers, develop parole release plans, and provide case reports to parole boards.
