Description

This text reflects recent changes in the training of probation and social workers. It addresses issues of knowledge, skills and practice as well as contemporary social issues. It also appraises policies and professional requirements critically. The book is divided into three sections: issues which inform practice - training skills and competencies, anti-discriminatory practice, autonomy and accountability, masculinity and the causes of crime; the contexts in which working with offenders takes place - probation boards; pre-sentence reports, community penalties, prison and the community; the outcomes of good practice - partnerships against crime and effectiveness and evaluation of crime prevention.
