Offering a succinct summary and critique of the scientific approach to offender rehabilitation, this intriguing volume for students of criminology, sociology and clinical psychology gives a comprehensive evaluation of both the Risk-Need Model and the Good Lives Model.
Rehabilitation is a value-laden process involving a delicate balance of the needs and desires of clinicians, clients, the State and the public. Written by two international leading academics in rehabilitation research, this book argues that intervention with offenders is not simply a matter of implementing the best therapeutic technology and leaving political and social debate to politicians and policy makers.

'This stimulating book introduces a relatively new approach to working with prisoners and those under probation supervision...It introduces ideas which will be of intense interest to those working in any capacity to support rehabilitation and an approach which, in its values and practicality, will appeal strongly to practitioners themselves. It deserves to be read and discussed widely.'
-- Probation Journal, 2008
'In conclusion, Rehabilitation: Beyond the Risk Paradigm is a compelling work which provides a stimulating account of rehabilitation and an accessible and rewarding discussion of the Risk-Need-Responsivity and GLM's respective theoretical frameworks.'
-Harry Annison, The Howard Journal
'As I have suggested, the fact that Rehabilitation does raise questions and can't be read without engaging with it is a plus in my opinion. Big ideas should make us think about our assumptions, what we know, and how we work....If you want to get under the bonnet of the GLM [Good Lives Model] and feel a bit challenged by some of the ideas, have something to reflect upon then this may just be the pool-side book for you this summer. If you have a pool. And if we have a summer.'
