Books Info:

Transitions to Better Lives free pdf The aim of this book is to describe, collate, and summarise a body of recent research, both theoretical and empirical, that explores the issue of treatment readiness in offender programming. The book is divided into three different sections. The first section unpacks a model of treatment readiness and how it has been operationalised- the second section discusses how the construct has been applied to the treatment of different offender groups- and, in the final section, some of the practice approaches that have been identified as holding promise in addressing low levels of offender readiness are discussed. Included are contributions from a number of authors whose work, in recent years, has stimulated discussion and helped to inform practice in offender rehabilitation. The title, "Transitions to Better Lives", was chosen to remind us of the ultimate purpose behind any attempt to rehabilitate offenders - that is, to help individuals learn how to meet their needs in ways that are both personally fulfilling and socially responsible. This book is ideal for those who work or study in the criminal justice system and are interested, or involved, with the delivery of rehabilitation and reintegration programmes for offenders. This includes psychologists, social workers, probation and parole officers, managers and policy makers, and prison officers.
