Before we go any further: Are you buying from outside Australia? We would love to ship this book to you BUT you must be studying at an Australian institution to buy this title from us at this price. Why? Because when we process your order we are required to provide to our supplier a confirmation of your student name, student ID and the institution. You really need it? We CAN still sell to overseas students however we need to advise you of the (unfortunately) higher price after you place your order. You can then decide whether you'd still like to proceed or cancel the order. That's just how it is. (sigh...) And of course, we wish you all the best with your studies : )




COMMUNITY-BASED CORRECTIONS, 12th Edition gives you a hands-on, real-world look at the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for a career in community corrections. From probation, parole, and problem-solving courts to electronic monitoring, work release, residential facilities, and day reporting centers, numerous supervision techniques and treatment programs are explored, as are methods for working with offenders that have special needs such as mental illness and substance abuse. You'll apply your knowledge using case studies and exercises -- you'll conduct a presentence interview, write a presentence report, score a risk/needs assessment, and design a treatment plan for case supervision. Available with MindTap, the digital learning solution that powers students' mastery of key concepts while engaging them with video cases, career scenarios, visual summaries, and more.
