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.

In addition, she has had hands-on, practical counseling experience in both adult and juvenile criminal justice systems. She has worked as a parole agent for the California Department of Corrections and the California Youth Authority.

Her textbook, Counseling Criminal Justice Offenders (1994), is published by Sage Publications. Dr. Masters is a member of American Society of Criminology; Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences; Western Society of Criminology; Women's Criminal Justice Association; California Probation, Parole and Correctional Association; and California State Juvenile Officers' Association.
