Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803959311, Paperback)This landmark volume responds to the persistent demands from criminal justice professionals, policy advisers and the general public for `correctional options that work'.
The contributors: define the options; seek to identify the varied concepts and hidden agendas underneath the simple phrase `what works?'; select three key areas in which to review relevant theory and empirical evidence - risk//needs assessment techniques; intervention//sanctioning options; programme implementation approaches; promote a dialogue amongst the key players which will prepare them for proactive decision-making on when and for whom alternatives to prison, particularly in the community, are appropriate rather than force them into panic dec
