Risk Management of Sex Offenders in the Community by Jackie Craissati
Book DescriptionHow can a psychological framework improve the success of risk management? The management of sex offenders in the community is of paramount concern to the general public, and this is reflected in the numberous recent changes to public protection procedures. Managing High Risk Sex Offenders in the Community covers both the assessment and management of high risk sex offenders in the community, with an emphasis on evidence-based approaches. The reader will be able to access the most widely used actuarial approaches to risk assessment and understand the clinical themes that underpin such variables. The book answers questions including: * Are sex offenders likely to escalate their behaviour if not stopped? * Is the risk on the streets or at home? * Can we differentiate between those offenders who will and those who will not reoffend? This book links psychologically-based theoretical principles with practical considerations for professionals in the field. By demystifying the current state of knowledge on risk posed by sex offenders, practitioners will be well placed to engage in defensible decision-making and strive for best practice in the community.
