De la réhabilitation au désistement assisté: transcender le modèle médical

Translated title of the contribution: From Rehabilitation to Assisted Desistance: Transcending the Medical Model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The concept of rehabilitation is sometimes contrasted with the idea of
spontaneous or natural desistance from crime. In this essay, I argue that both
these concepts are based in a medical model of understanding change that is
not consistent with what is known about how the process of desistance actually
works. Both rehabilitation and spontaneous desistance should be understood
in a more nuanced and integrative way, as in the assisted desistance or
co-produced desistance rhetoric used in British desistance research.
