I identify the current criminal punishments in our law systems as no good option to reduce crimes in our society. Jail specially has no more objectives that punish the convicts for what they have done. But after their penalty is accomplished, are they ready to become reintegrated into society? So, I consider important the consolidation of psychology and law in the field of criminal institutions, to decrease the level of crimes within societies. The implementation of other punishments as work for their communities to medical treatment depending on the case will decrease crimes in our society.
As different approaches to society, the first one studies the behavior while the second one determinates the must behavior the society must follow. I would like to learn more about this topic and do research to understand how these two approaches can fusion together in the aim to help each other. Since I want to become a lawyer I would like to also embrace psychological instruction. The law should also come together with the study of human behavior. By implementing psychology in criminal law, social issues like robbery could be handled differently. Felons could learn lessons from their mistakes and be better reintegrated into society.
As of today jails have been put in place as the most effective solution. However, is it the best methodology to reduce crimes or even prevent them? Furthermore, is society aware of the social consequences like discrimination of who had been put in jail? I believe that by comprehending these two subjects; lawyers, jurist, and international organizations can reach an answer towards peoples behavior and how to prevent crimes instead of filling jails. In summary, psychological treatment can be more helpful when it comes to robbery than neglecting people on jails.
