The Handbook of Psychology for Forensic Practitioners


The Handbook of Psychology for Forensic Practioners discusses some of the ways in which psychological research and methods can be applied by a wide variety of professional groups working with offenders. The book concentrates on the assessment of risk in forensic settings and the interventions designed to reduce risk in violent and sexual offenders.
In three sections it looks at:what we know about offenders; the assessment of risk; and the applicationn of psychological assessment and intervention approaches.
By illustrating theoretical practice with case examples and also practical guidance The Handbook of Psychology for Forensic Practitioners develops a very practical focus throughout the text. Each chapter of the book is also designed so that it can be read in isolation and still provide useful guidance. It can be used as an aid to day to day professional practice for those working in forensic settings including probation officers, social workers, nurses, psychologists and psychiatrists.
