Joined Forces: Strengthen professional behaviour in probation services for addicted offenders

Addiction rehabilitation clients often have multiple problems. In the project Joined Forces, professional action and structured reflection within addiction rehabilitation are central. Using and connecting three sources of knowledge (client needs, professional experiences and scientific knowledge) can strengthen the effectiveness of professional action.

Little research has yet been done into the integration of client needs, experiential knowledge and theoretical knowledge in the professional conduct of probation officers. With this research we explore how integration of these three sources of knowledge can become a structural part of the daily actions of probation officers and how systematic reflection can contribute to this.
