Overview

O'Reilly (clinical psychology, University College Dublin) provides an overview of the growing body of empirical and theoretical knowledge in the field and of how this knowledge guides evidence-based practice. Practical guidelines are provided from international experts with experience in research and clinical practice, and previously neglected subjects, such as female offenders and offenders with intellectual disabilities, are discussed. Relapse prevention, psychiatric disorders and adolescent offending, assessment, and training staff to work with young people who sexually abuse, are some other areas discussed.
