Clinical Criminology: Theory, Research, and Practice deals with a wide variety of topics in the fields of forensic psychology and forensic psychiatry. The book brings together a collection of articles that will interest psychologists, psychiatrics, social workers, and other clinicians who work with offenders. Correctional officials, including parole and probation officers, will find this material to be exceptionally valuable.
The text covers six major theories of criminal behaviours, Psychiatric, Biological, Biosocial, Learning, Cognitive, and Psychiatric. The section on understanding and treating offenders and offences deals with a vast range of material, including substance abuse, violent offenders, juvenile offenders, mentally handicapped, and elderly offenders. The pages devoted to the role of the clinician deal with the professional as expert witness, decision making, and incarceration.
Clinical Criminology: Theory, Research, and Practice is an invaluable resource for students of criminology as well as professionals working in the justice system.
