Violent and Sexual Offenders: Assessment, Treatment & Management

Jane L. Ireland, Carol A. Ireland (Editor), Philip Birch

Research output: Book/ReportEdited book

Abstract

Building on the success of the first edition and the growth of research in the field over the past decade, this book offers an authoritative overview of the assessment, treatment, and management of violent and sexual offenders. This new and expanded edition reflects the considerable developments in research and empirical data and captures the increasing breadth of risk assessment approaches, the wider range of empirically based therapies and the more creative means of considering management.

The second edition captures key developments in this area, with new chapters drawing on a range of pressing contemporary issues such as female offenders, Internet offenders, terrorists, young people involved in harmful sexual behaviour, and protective factors for aggression. There is also extended coverage of the management of offenders within secure settings and in the community, referring to a wider variety of approaches and the incorporation of technology.

This book will be of considerable interest to academics, practitioners, and students engaged with understanding and/or treating violence and aggression, sex crime, forensic psychology, and the assessment, treatment, and management of offenders.
