Review quote

'We now have access to a much deeper understanding of both the aetiology of aggressive acts and their treatment. We need no longer ignore criminals or abuse them - instead we can provide compassion and containment...The volumes in this series provide both practical advice and theoretical stimulation for introductory students and senior practitioners alike. With the growth of the field of forensic psychotherapy, we at last have reason to be hopeful that serious criminality can be forestalled and perhaps, one day, even eradicated.'- Brett Kahr, Series Editor, from the Foreword
