Abstract

Offender engagement in group offending behavior programs (GOBPs) is under-theorized. Furthermore, there is no research on facilitators’ engagement. The Program Engagement Theory (PET) was developed using constructivist grounded theory to analyze interviews and session observations from 23 facilitators and 28 offenders. This paper focuses on engagement motivators. Offenders’ motivators were classified as internal drivers (e.g. seeing self as an agent for change) and in-session drivers (e.g. relating to facilitators). Facilitators’ motivators included knowing about offences and on-going behavior, vs knowing about offenders as people). The PET presents implications for referral procedures as well as the design and facilitation of GOBPs.
