Offender Rehabilitation and Treatment draws together internationally renowned experts from the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and Australia. Chapters summarize some of the most recent and exciting developments in this field and offer a systematic, knowledge-based approach to the effective reduction of criminal behavior.

Criminal behaviour continues to be a matter of major public concern. How society should respond to it and what should be done with those who repeatedly offend remain hotly disputed topics of conversation.

Offender Rehabilitation and Treatment links theory, research and practice in a coherent way by providing a systematic, evidence-based approach for the effective reduction of criminal behaviour. James McGuire has brought together internationally renowned experts from a variety of specialisms to present the cutting edge of the most recent and exciting developments in this field.

The coverage of the book includes:
* three new meta-analytic reviews published for the first time
* update surveys on "what works" from Europe and North America
* methods of longer-term developmental crime prevention
* implementation issues for new programmes and services
* the links between violence and alcohol, domestic violence/spouse abuse, treatment of sexual offenders and approaches to predatory offenders.
