In the specific context of social work with offenders, criticism Justifying Rehabilitation 25 tended to focus on the idea of ‘treatment’: treatment implied illness, which was different from crime and typically involved involuntary incapacities rather than chosen misbehaviour (Flew, 1973); treatment typically involved doing things to a passive and objectified patient, rather than collaborating with an active and reasoning person to solve problems (Bottoms and McWilliams, 1979), and treatment attributed to individual pathology problems which were actually consequences of social disadvantage (Walker and Beaumont, 1981).
Origins and Contexts 35 It is clear from Howard’s writings that Fielding’s ideas were one source of inspiration for his own model of penitentiary discipline. 2 Howard’s central proposal was that the prison could be made to work in the interests of offender reform. ‘The penitentiary houses’, Howard remarked, ‘. . may, under proper management, be made to answer very useful purposes’ (1929, pp. 44–45). But in order to achieve reform, significant changes in prison conditions were necessary. Again, Howard echoed Fielding’s firmly held belief3 that exposure to religion would go a long way towards correcting the morals of offenders and, to this end, he proposed a central role for prison chaplains, envisaging both regular sermons and bible readings for all prisoners.
And I am well informed that many come out sober and honest. (Howard, 1929, p. 48) Following his account of Dutch practices Howard makes clear his ‘ardent wishes’, that our prisons also, instead of echoing with profaneness and blasphemy, might hereafter resound with the offices of religious worship; and prove, like these, the happy means of awakening many to a sense of their duty to God and man. (1929, p. 53) 36 Rehabilitation, Crime and Justice A firm believer in the immorality of idleness, Howard was also convinced of the reformative effect of enforced labour, and approved of the European practice of putting convicts to work as an alternative to transportation.
