Applying Theory and Research to Offender Rehabilitation ‐ What Should Practitioners Know?

Applying Theory and Research to Offender Rehabilitation ‐ What Should Practitioners Know? Surveys of offender treatment programmes have revealed that practitioners delivering specialist programmes are often unaware of much of the theoretical and research literature behind the interventions they deliver. For practitioners working less routinely with offenders, such as forensic nurses, this problem is likely to be more acute. In this paper, we provide a general overview of the theoretical and research literature relevant to programmes targeting sexual and aggressive offending that should be of interest to a range of professionals working with offenders in different clinical settings. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The British Journal of Forensic Practice Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Surveys of offender treatment programmes have revealed that practitioners delivering specialist programmes are often unaware of much of the theoretical and research literature behind the interventions they deliver. For practitioners working less routinely with offenders, such as forensic nurses, this problem is likely to be more acute. In this paper, we provide a general overview of the theoretical and research literature relevant to programmes targeting sexual and aggressive offending that should be of interest to a range of professionals working with offenders in different clinical settings.
