Special needs offenders in the community

Hanser, Robert D. (Author).

Summary: "The first of its kind, Special Needs Offenders in the Community, First Edition, offers a strong community-based orientation and addresses both public safety and treatment issues related to a variety of special offender typologies. Drawing from the fields of criminal justice, psychology, and counseling, the text discusses 12 unique offender types and places a strong emphasis on assessment, diagnosis and outcomes. This new text offers thorough coverage of assessment and classification instruments, shows how to modify existing supervision and treatment practices, and emphasizes the theme of community justice throughout."--Publisher's website.
