University of Michigan researcher Matt Smith and his team at the School of Social Work have developed a virtual job interview tool to assist individuals returning to their communities after completing a prison sentence. These individuals often have critically low employment rates, which are associated with higher rates of recidivism. Smith and his team have partnered with the Michigan Department of Corrections in a study to help enhance the implementation of evidence-based practice within the justice system, promoting Smart Decarceration.
