Violent crime, unlike other criminal activities, is on the increase, and is of growing media and public concern. Approaching the issue from a practitioner's viewpoint, Good Practice in Working with Violence focuses on working with perpetrators of violence that has resulted in both physical and psychological harm. Drawing on the experiences of contributors from a range of backgrounds, the book discusses the challenges involved in working with violence and its effects, including:

  • the assessment of violent persons and the extent to which violent behaviours can be predicted
  • the production of reliable assessment methods for use in the field
  • the moral and ethical issues presented by such assessments
  • the extent to which violent behaviours can be successfully managed in the community or institutions
  • the most effective intervention techniques for work with perpetrators of violence
  • multi-agency responses to violent offenders
  • training
  • roles and responsibilities
  • the issue of public protection.

Relevant for a variety of practice settings, Good Practice in Working with Violence is a comprehensive guide to the techniques and skills required for good practice in assessing and managing violence.
