Does cognitive behavior therapy as a rehabilitative intervention among prisoners reduce re-arrest rates of sexual offenders?

Quantitative
Participants & Sampling
Direction: Based on the Quantitative research question you
submitted from Module 1 (or change it if needed), please answer the following:
1) identify the population (to which you want to generalize) and
your sample,
2) identify the type of sampling method you plan to use,
3) describe the step-by-step procedure how you will get your
sample from the population using this particular sampling method you identified
in item 2. (Be realistic and specific! Anyone who reads this should be able to
replicate the procedure without asking you questions.)
The three things listed above must be aligned and
consistent. Please include your (revised) quantitative research question
in this assignment.

Quantitative Research Question (RQ)
and Hypotheses
1.
Research Question:
Does cognitive behavior therapy as a rehabilitative intervention among
prisoners reduce re-arrest rates of sexual offenders?
2.
Independent variable;
cognitive behavior therapy- continuous
dependent variable; re-arrest rates of sexual offenders – continuous
3.
Null hypothesis:
ho: cognitive behavior therapy as a
rehabilitative intervention among prisoners does not reduce re-arrest of sexual
offenders
Alternative hypothesis: h1: cognitive
behavior therapy as a rehabilitative intervention among prisoners positively
reduces the re-arrest of sexual offenders
