Overview

This book draws on the latest literature to highlight a fundamental challenge in offender rehabilitation; it questions the ability of contemporary approaches to address this challenge, and proposes an alternative strategy of criminal justice that integrates control, opportunity, and autonomy.

• Provides an up to date review of the links between cognition and criminal behavior, as well as treatment and rehabilitation

• Engages directly with the antisocial underpinnings of criminal behavior, a major impediment to treatment and rehabilitation

• Outlines a clear strategy for communicating with offenders which is firmly rooted in the “What Works” literature, is evidence-based, and provides a way of engaging even the most antisocial of offenders by presenting them with meaningful opportunities to change

• Offers hands-on instructions based upon the real-life tactics and presentation of the high-risk offender
