              Criminological and penological scholarship has in recent years explored how and why institutions and systems of punishment change - and how and why these changes differ in different contexts. Important though these analyses are, this book focuses not so much on the changing natur...e of institutions and systems, but rather the changing nature of penal practice and practitioners Bringing together leading researchers from around the world, this collection unites studies that aim to describe and critically analyse penal practice with studies that investigate its effectiveness and prescribe its future development. Reversing penology's usual preoccupation with the prison, the book focuses mainly on penal practice in the community (i.e. on probation, parole, offender supervision and 'community corrections'). The first part of the book focuses on understanding practice and practitioners, exploring how changing social, cultural, political, and organisational contexts influence practice, and how training, development, professional socialisation and other factors influence practitioners. The second part is concerned with how practitioners can be best supported to develop the skills and approaches that seem most likely to generate positive impacts. It contains accounts of new practice models and approaches, as well as reports of research projects seeking both to discover and to encourage effective practices. This book explores internationally significant and cutting-edge theoretical and empirical work on the cultures, practices, roles and impacts of frontline practitioners in delivering penal sanctions. As such, it will be of interest to researchers in criminology, social work and social policy as well as correctional policy makers and those involved in community supervision.

              Reimagining Rehabilitation: Beyond the Individual (Hardback)

              Although a significant body of empirical literature advocates approaches, values and skills supporting desistance from crime, this is somewhat undermined by contemporary criminal justice polices that seek to commodify individuals to meet the demands made on practitioners and orga...nisations reflecting the exigencies of the market. This book outlines an approach to the rehabilitation of adult offenders which takes into account the wider democratic processes, political structures and mechanisms of resource allocation within which current modes of service delivery are taking place within in England & Wales and beyond. Moving beyond a critique of neoliberalism, this book aims to re-imagine rehabilitation within the context of social action. It draws on a range of contemporary topics such as professional ethics and standards, the politics of criminal justice, crime and the role of inequality and social democracy, the impact of policy on local communities, offenders with complex needs, public engagement with rehabilitation and the role of technology in offender supervision. It is essential reading for students and scholars alike, particularly those engaged with criminal justice policy, probation and offender rehabilitation.

              Reducing Reoffending

              Reducing Reoffending provides a critical overview of social work and community justice in Scotland, taking full account of recent developments. The book is divided into three comprehensive sections. Part one of the book provides a critical analysis of the challenge of reducing re...offending in Scotland and locates this challenge within its historical context. Part one also reviews the available evidence about when, how and why people stop offending; about desistance from crime. This analysis exposes not only the complexities of desistance processes, but also the many difficulties that offenders face in making the related transition. Part two of the book provides an account of the legal contexts of criminal justice social work services in Scotland analysing both the role that social work plays in the sentencing process and its role in supervising offenders in the community. The final part the book addresses questions of how the practice of supervision might be best developed so as to support desistance and reduce reoffending, though the books final conclusion is that reducing reoffending requires a much broader commitment to promoting and realising justice in the community.

              Community Punishment: European perspectives
               

              Community Punishment: European perspectives (Hardback)

              In Community Punishment: European perspectives, the authors place punishment in the community under the spotlight by exploring the origins, evolution and adaptations of supervision in 11 European jurisdictions. For most people, punishment in the criminal justice system is synonym...ous with imprisonment. Yet, both in Europe and in the USA, the numbers of people under some form of penal supervision in the community far exceeds the numbers in prison, and many prisoners are released under supervision. Written and edited by leading scholars in the field, this collection advances the sociology of punishment by illuminating the neglected but crucial phenomenon of 'mass supervision'. As well as putting criminological and penological theories to the test in an examination of their ability to explain the evolution of punishment beyond the prison, and across diverse states, the contributors to this volume also assess the appropriateness of the term 'community punishment' in different parts of Europe. Engaging in a serious exploration of common themes and differences in the jurisdictions included in the collection, the authors go on to examine how 'community punishment' came into being in their jurisdiction and how its institutional forms and practices have been legitimated and re-legitimated in response to shifting social, cultural and political contexts. This book is essential reading for academics and students involved in the study of both community punishment and comparative penology, but will also be of great interest to criminal justice policymakers, managers and practitioners.

Though rooted in social theory and social research, its innovative approach complements more conventional academic wri...ting with photography, song-writing and storytelling.
