Overview

Criminal behaviour continues to be a matter of major public concern. How should society respond? What should be done with those who offend repeatedly?

Offender Rehabilitation and Treatment links theory, research and practice in a coherent way by providing a systematic, evidence-based approach for the effective reduction of criminal behaviour. James McGuire has brought together internationally renowned experts from a variety of specialisms to present the cutting edge of the most recent and exciting developments in this field.

The coverage of the book includes:

  • three new meta-analytic reviews published for the first time
  • update surveys on "what works" from Europe and North America
  • methods of longer-term developmental crime prevention
  • implementation issues for new programmes and services
  • the links between violence and alcohol, domestic violence/spouse abuse, treatment of sexual offenders and approaches to predatory offenders.
This book will be invaluable to academics, professionals and trainees working with offenders, directly or indirectly, in criminal justice, social service and mental health professions. Practitioners and their managers, students and teachers in psychology, probation, prison and forensic services, family work and allied professions will find something of value to add to their knowledge and inform their practice directly.
