Summary

This new edition covers the latest findings in biology and what they mean for individuals working in corrections; practical interviewing and counseling skills, including motivational interviewing; how to adapt counseling theories to community or institutional corrections; and how to supervise the alcoholic, drug addict, sex offender, schizophrenic, mentally ill and mentally deficient client. The authors explain the differences among several counseling strategies and provide readers with opportunities to practice their skills. Presentence reports, sentencing guidelines, classification scales, risk and needs scales, and scoring documents give readers an understanding of the actual assessment process. Walsh and Stohr include a section on the legal issues involved in counseling these individuals, and a new chapter on therapeutic communities provides guidance on what works in these settings. Each of the 22 chapters includes, a Perspectives from the Field, essay that provides real-world commentary from correctional practitioners. An extensive index enables students and researchers to hone in on topics of interest.
