Description

This volume brings together in a single source a set of perspectives by leaders in the clinical treatment of criminal offenders in outpatient settings, particularly those whose crimes have involved domestic violence and/or substance abuse. More than a set of "how to" techniques, it addresses the question of which offenders can successfully be treated in what settings by which techniques. It is a valuable resource not only for those concerned with prisons, probation, and parole, but also for those responsible for the delivery of mental health services in the community.show more
