A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. There is a large body of research that provides guidance for those working with offenders on how they should be treated once they are in the correctional system. The problem is that most, if not all this research has been conducted on all male populations and it is assumed that women offenders are the same. However, women have different needs and support systems than men in some areas of their lives and it is unclear whether all research based on men can be generalized in this way. The book provides a review of the research literature to guide evidence-based practice in the assessment and treatment of adult female offenders. An historical overview of women s crime and imprisonment will be followed by a global review of various theories of female criminality. The remainder of the book reviews the psychology of criminal conduct, with a specific focus on three psychological principles of effective intervention: risk, need and responsivity. Respectively, these principles set the who , what and how for correctional intervention. N° de réf. du libraire AAH9780470864623

Synopsis :

There is a large body of research that provides guidance for those working with offenders on how they should be treated once they are in the correctional system. The problem is that most, if not all this research has been conducted on all male populations and it is assumed that women offenders are the same. However, women have different needs and support systems than men in some areas of their lives and it is unclear whether all research based on men can be generalized in this way.

The book provides a review of the research literature to guide evidence-based practice in the assessment and treatment of adult female offenders. An historical overview of women’s crime and imprisonment will be followed by a global review of various theories of female criminality.  The remainder of the book reviews the psychology of criminal conduct, with a specific focus on three psychological principles of effective intervention: risk, need and responsivity. Respectively, these principles set the “who”, “what” and “how” for correctional intervention.

From the Back Cover:

Current correctional practice is decidedly evidence-based. Regrettably, however, the majority of research studies has either focused exclusively on male offenders, or has failed to disaggregate the results by gender. As such, the question remains: do effective female-specific correctional services differ from effective correctional services in general? If so, how?

In this groundbreaking text, Kelley Blanchette and Shelley Brown explore whether and how the assessment and treatment of women offenders should differ from that of men. Firmly grounded in a theoretical context, this book focuses on the specific areas of risk, needs and responsivity. It reviews the nature and scope of adult female offending, provides an overview of contemporary theories, offers guidance on evidence-based practice for assessing women’s risks and needs and explores directions for future research. The result is a reconciliation of diverse perspectives and a reformulated gender-informed paradigm for the assessment and treatment of women offenders.

The Assessment and Treatment of Women Offenders presents policy makers and practitioners with the evidence needed to develop successful services for this population. It is essential reading for all professionals working with adult female offenders.
