Books Info:

Developments in Social Work with Offenders free pdf "Developments in Social Work with Offenders" explains the organisational and legislative changes that have occurred and social work and probation across the UK in the past 10 years, in the context of the accumulating body of knowledge about what constitutes effective practice in the assessment, supervision and management of offenders in the community. Three different aspects of working with offenders are covered: developments in policy- assessment, supervision and intervention- and issues and needs. Contributions from experts in the field discuss issues such as community 'punishment', case management, accreditation and resettlement. The continuing concern with promoting evidence-based solutions to crime is addressed, and this book will assist professionals working with offenders with making focused interventions supported by research. This book will be essential reading for students of social work and probation and criminology, probation officers and social workers. This topical series examines areas of particular interest to those in social and community work and related fields. Each book draws together different aspects of the subject, highlighting relevant research and drawing out implications for policy and practice. The project is under the editorial direction of Professor Joyce Lishman, Head of the School of Applied Social Studies at the Robert Gordon University.
