The Good Lives Model (GLM) is a strengths based approach to offender rehabilitation which aims to promote an individual’s aspirations and plans for a more meaningful and personally fulfilling life (Ward, 2010). The GLM and the traditional Risk Need Responsivity (RNR) approach to offender rehabilitation are not mutually exclusive. Risks and needs can be reduced or managed within the GLM framework, which delivers a more holistic, client-centred, and engaging framework within which to do this (Ward and Fortune, 2013).
