Description - Mentally Disordered Offenders by David Webb
This text presses the case for better health care of mentally disturbed law breakers, and the need to divert them from unnecessary imprisonment. With specialist contributors from criminology, criminal justice, social work, probation practice and the law, the book stresses the importance of professional cooperation in community-based services, whilst acknowledging the psychologically demanding nature of working with mentally disordered people. The text also looks at the very real challenges of attempting to contain their wrongdoing without recourse to the repressiveness of imprisonment.
