Many people argue that offending behaviour is one of the most problematic issues in our communities today. An offender's decision to resort to crime affects people and society on a day-to-day basis and brings significant emotional, physical, and financial costs to bear. The practitioner's job in the Probation Service and Youth Offending Service is to try and halt offending behaviour and to protect the public from further crime through Pre-Sentence Report recommendations, the implementation of appropriate rehabilitation programmes, and more.
"Reoffending" is aimed at readers beginning their careers of working with offenders in the Probation Service and Youth Offending Service.
Other professionals, such as the Police Service, homelessness services, and healthcare services will also find valuable and pertinent information covered as working practitioner Jonathan Hussey explores some of the most powerful methods in addressing offending behaviour today. "Reoffending" examines how offenders enter the United Kingdom's Criminal Justice System, and the working relationship between the offender and the practitioner. It goes on to cover specifics such as working with individuals who misuse substances, domestic abuse, violent offenders, working with sex offenders, and working with offenders with emotional problems.
The book includes tips, focused exercises and case studies that the author and many other professionals have found to be effective in daily practice - shedding some much needed light on the cloud of mystery that surrounds working with offending behaviour.
