Summary

This report summarizes innovative applications of technology to assess and treat addictive disorders among offenders in the criminal justice system, with a focus on impulse control deficits. Impulse control is a multi-faceted construct that includes the ability to inhibit inappropriate responses, to delay gratification, and to avoid making risky choices. A wealth of validated computerized measures of impulsive behaviour have been employed in research with offenders. This report addressed three goals: (1) conduct a systematic review of research using technology to assess impulse control in offenders; (2) summarize current knowledge about the neural basis of these deficits; and (3) discuss innovative applications of technology to treat addictive disorders, with a focus on application in correctional settings.
