Interventions in Criminal Justice Volume 2: A handbook for counsellors and therapists working in the criminal justice system is an exciting second edition of Interventions in Criminal Justice and is a response to therapy in the criminal justice setting and addresses additional contemporary issues and challenges faced by counsellors and therapists working in the criminal justice system. It aims to make clear the links between the role of therapy in the life of an offender or ex-offender and their subsequent resettlement and rehabilitation.
Interventions in Criminal Justice Volume 2 brings together the experiences and expertise of a range of practitioners who work within criminal justice and provides a broad and informative account of working therapeutically with a diverse range of clients and issues.
This volume is a ground breaker – expanding in both breadth and depth – it is perhaps illustrative of the field and to the tremendous credit of Peter Jones that there are such a range of voices in this volume. There is strength to such diversity and open and continued discourse.
