In brief: Theraband
Theraband exercises which are progressively stronger large rubber bands are an excellent exercise to improve stability and strength about the shoulder after a dislocation.

In brief: Anterior Dislocation
Most dislocations occur when the humerus shifts anteriorly in relationship to the glenoid = anterior dislocation.
I suggest a thrower's 10 program (http://www.Orthonc.Com/sites/default/files/forms/physical_therapy/sports_protocols/throwers_ten_exercise_program.Pdf) with bands/ light wt. Avoid tricep dips, & push-ups/ bench (w/ >90 elbow flexion) b/c these position the shoulder in a vulnerable way.
