Counseling Criminal Justice Offenders, Second Edition offers individuals a practical preparation for communicating with offenders. Recognising that individuals who counsel offenders in the criminal justice system often have not had the extensive training of a licensed psychologist, this book gives essential information, proven systems that have stood the test of time in American prisons and appropriate and effective counsellor attitudes.
