The Good Lives Model (GLM) and the Risk-NeedsResponsivity (RNR) model.
This assignment will have you compare and contrast the Good Lives Model (GLM) and the Risk-NeedsResponsivity (RNR) model. You should begin by identifying the underlying assumptions regarding the cases of
criminal behaviour and core principles for each model. Necessarily, this review should include a discussion of
the GLM’s “goods” and the empirically identified risk factors associated with RNR. Your review should also
include a discussion of the principles of intervention relied on by each model, as well as the outcome data.
“Outcome data” refers to the empirical studies evaluating the effectiveness of each model.
In addition to the above, you will need to conduct a review of the research literature to properly complete this
assignment. This review does not need to be comprehensive as the literature for each model is very large; but
your review will need to extend beyond the required readings for Unit 3. To be clear, you cannot rely solely on
your required readings for this assignment. Additionally, Wikipedia (or similar internet sources) is unacceptable
as a scholarly source of information in this course. You must use APA formatting for your references and your
paper must not exceed 15 double-spaced pages (including references); and your font should be 12-point
Times New Roman.
In summary, this assignment requires that you produce a 15 page, APA-formatted paper that compares and
contrasts the GLM and RNR, with a review of empirical findings for each model. For more information on APA
style conventions, refer to the “Tips on Writing Research Papers” Word document under Resources on the
course homepage. Additionally, AU’s Write Site is an excellent resource for learning more about APA style
