In this systematic review, literature concerning clinical interventions that reduce recidivism among female offenders was reviewed and analyzed. Using the databases PsycINFO and Criminal Justice Abstracts Full Text, 10 studies regarding clinical interventions met the criteria for this systematic review. All studies were analyzed by specific clinical interventions that were conducted while females were in prison and or after release. The findings focused on what interventions work specifically for women to reduce substance abuse issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, and mental health diagnoses. Implications for future research include identifying interventions that are directly linked to the reduction of recidivism.
