A Companion to Criminal Justice, Mental Health and Risk Paperback / softback

Edited by Paul (University of Chester) Taylor, Karen (Liverpool John Moores University) Corteen, Sharon (University of Chester) Morley

Part of the Companions in Criminology and Criminal Justice series

Paperback / softback


Within the domains of criminal justice and mental health care, critical debate concerning 'care' versus 'control' and 'therapy' versus 'security' is now commonplace.

Indeed, the 'hybridisation' of these areas is now a familiar theme. This unique and topical text provides an array of expert analyses from key contributors in the field that explore the interface between criminal justice and mental health.

Using concise yet robust definitions of key terms and concepts, it consolidates scholarly analysis of theory, policy and practice.

Readers are provided with practical debates, in addition to the theoretical and ideological concerns surrounding the risk assessment, treatment, control and risk management in a cross-disciplinary context. Included in this book is recommended further reading and an index of legislation, making it an ideal resource for students at undergraduate and postgraduate level, together with researchers and practitioners in the field.
