Constructive Work with Offenders Paperback / softback
Edited by Nigel Parton, Marilyn Gregory, Michelle Hayles, Kevin Gorman
Constructive Work with Offenders offers a challenge to many of the assumptions of criminal justice policy and the dominant approaches to practice. The contributors advocate an emphasis on constructive work with offenders that harnesses their positive strengths and resources, and offers inclusive approaches to effective offender assessment and intervention.
Taking a fresh look at much received knowledge, they proclaim that constructive work with offenders is both possible and increasingly warranted, and encourage practitioners to develop new skills and adapt existing expertise to the rapidly changing requirements of the criminal justice system. This book will be of interest to practitioners, trainers, managers, and researchers in the criminal justice system, as well as academics and students in the field of criminology and related disciplines.
