I'm doing prisons too! "There is no effective alternative to prisons" I've just started by working through my first aims and doing some primary/secondary research. Just start googling!

I'm doing my dissertation at the moment too on the effectiveness of prison and it isn't really going too well, I need to find theorists to talk about but so far found none I would really want to include

and if anyone could help me out by filling in my survey I would be really grateful :

I have my dissertation aims and hypothesis all typed up and handed in to my teacher, although i am now re-considering whether it would be easier to use the hypothesis/title of "There are no effective alternatives to prison" rather than the one i have already which is "Working class people are more likely to commit crime". Is it too late to completely change ideas? The reason i am thinking of changing is because i am struggling to find books etc regarding social classes and crime and maybe it will be easier to use primary and secondary research for the alternatives to prison title. Help?

Hi,

I have the exact same title as yourself and don't have a clue either. Apparently the introductions are meant to be huge?

cheers

Hi!
I am currently studying the new Advanced Higher Modern Studies course and am struggling with the introduction and conclusion for my dissertation. My hypothesis is; The Criminal Justice System fails to meet the mental health needs of criminals.

My three aims are;
~To evaluate the effectiveness of the mental health services in prisons in dealing with the root cause of prisoners criminality.
~To investigate whether prisoners with mental health needs are discriminated against in the justice system.
~To analyse the impact alternative punishments have in dealing with criminals with mental health issues in comparison to prison.

I am really struggling with the introduction and conclusion and I would really appreciate any help or tips any of you could give me for this.

Thank You.
