Forensic practice in the community is a neglected subject. There are many books looking at forensic work in secure settings, such as prisons or hospitals, but very little has been written about forensic practice in the community. This book describes the current and exciting developments in this area, for both young people and adults, by leaders in their field. It is in the community where interventions with those who have offended are all ultimately tested. Bringing together a range of experts from both the practitioner and academic community, this book covers: •multisystemic therapy for families, •sexual and violent offending, •learning disabilities, •substance misuse, •risk assessment, prediction and management, •personality disordered offenders •resettlement following custody, •desistance of criminal behaviour, •community interventions. Beginning with an overview of forensic practice in the community, the book addresses policy, practice and ethical issues, focusing on the specific dilemmas facing practitioners and providing an analysis of international perspectives. It describes how to meet the challenge of significantly diverting and reducing the prison population through more effective community intervention with adults and young people and also makes suggestions for the future. This book offers a range of recent case studies, has descriptions of new areas of community practice by those working or studying in that area and covers cutting-edge developments in practice and policy. It will be of interest to academics, practitioners and students in forensic psychology, as well as social workers, probation officers, youth offending officers, police officers, criminal justice agencies and mental health professionals.

Youth crime and youth violence blights our communities and shapes the lives of many, whether they are victims, perpetrators or family members. This book examines the application of psychological thinking and practice when working with young people who display high risk behaviours across a broad range of forensic mental health settings in the UK. It provides an up-to-date account of current thinking and practice in the field and the challenges of applying effective psychological approaches within forensic settings for young people. The contributors to Young People in Forensic Mental Health Settings are drawn from a range of environments including universities, youth offending services, secure in-patient settings, young offender institutions, Community Forensic Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (F-CAMHS), and secure children's homes. This volume serves as an important platform for debate and as a forum for discussing the future delivery of psychologically informed services, intervention and mental health provision with young people who display high-risk behaviours.

Expanding on ideas proposed by leading thinkers throughout the history of forensic science, Principles and Practice of Criminalistics: The Profession of Forensic Science outlines a logical framework for the examination of physical evidence in a criminalistics laboratory. The book reexamines prevailing criminalistics concepts in light of both technical and intellectual advances and provides a way of conceptualizing physical evidence from its origin through its interpretation. Conceptually, the book explains what forensic scientists do and discusses the philosophical and practical considerations that affect the conduct of their work. To be sure, some of the ideas challenge conventional wisdom on the subject, and as such, are bound to provoke discussion among members of the forensic community. Against this background, Principles and Practice of Criminalistics: The Profession of Forensic Science is a tremendously valuable reference for professionals involved in forensic science and other related fields.

"[T]his book provides practical practice guidance as well as...interviewing and assessment tips....[A]n invaluable source of information for students, practitioners, researchers and educators." -Karen M. Sowers, PhD Dean, University of Tennessee College of Social Work Regardless of their field of practice, all social workers must understand how legal issues impact the financial, psychological, emotional, and social concerns that their clients face. Yet legal issues are rarely integrated in social work education in a meaningful and practical way. Therefore, it is imperative that social workers gain the interdisciplinary knowledge of the laws and policies that affect their client populations. This groundbreaking text broadens the traditional definition of forensic social work to include the legal issues encountered in all social work settings-family and social services, education, child welfare, mental health, addiction treatment, juvenile and criminal systems, and immigration services. Advocating a collaborative approach, this book will allow social workers to navigate the complex social and legal issues that affect their clients. Includes discussions of the common legal issues all social workers face: How to help meet basic client needs such as income, food, and shelter Policies and practice with victims of violence The relationship between school social work and the law Assessment and treatment of child abuse and neglect The legal needs of clients with mental health and addiction issues Forensic practice in juvenile and criminal justice systems Effective practice with immigrants, refugees, and victims of human trafficking Digital instructor's materials available upon request.

The criminal profiling community can easily be split into two separate groups: those that have written criminal profiles and those that have not. It is an important distinction, because report writing is one the most important requirements of good scientific practice. The process of writing up findings helps to reveal flaws in an examiner’s logic so that they can be amended or revisited; the final report memorializes findings and their underlying basis at a fixed point in time; and as a document a forensic report provides the best mechanism for transparency and peer review. The problem is that many criminal profilers haven’t written criminal profilers, and still more prefer that this remain the case, often to conceal their lack of methodology or ability. The contributors to this volume have travelled the world for more than a decade to lecture on the subjects of crime scene analysis and criminal profiling. The result has been a steady stream of requests continued from educational institutions and government agencies alike to teach the application of criminal profiling theory. Everyone has read the books, everyone has attended the lecture; but few have experience with hands on practice and application. In other words, there is a growing number of serious professionals that want to know how to put theory into practice, and then learn what it means to put their findings into written form. Behavioral Evidence Analysis: International Forensic Practice and Protocols has been written as a companion text to Turvey’s Criminal Profiling, now in it’s 4th edition. It is meant to provide the legion of instructors that are teaching criminal profiling as a subject with real world examples of case reports. It is also meant to serve as a desk reference for professionals that are writing crime scene analysis and criminal profiling reports, to enable sampling of structure, terminology, and references. One of a kind desk reference containing actual criminal profiles for student and examiner reference. Contributions prepared by an international group of board certified criminal profilers. Reports are prepared in relation to both investigative and forensic contexts. Demonstrates the utility of criminal profiling in both teaching and a casework. Compliant with practice standards and ethical guidelines published by the International Association of Forensic Criminologists, the Academy of Behavioral Profiling, and the Global Forensic Alliance.

The first comprehensive account of forensic nursing and its role within the wider professional team, the aim of this book is to provide a multidisciplinary perspective on the training needed to work with mentally disordered patients, as well as to examine the key characteristics of the forensic nursing role. An international group of contributors, from a wide range of disciplines, provides a well-rounded, comparative view of the forensic nursing profession. The chapters are a rich contribution of cross-cultural thinking on the many dilemmas and challenges facing nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists and other health care practitioners, working with specific client groups. Each contributor has utilised empirical data to analyse relevant issues, such as: professional standards; effectiveness of preparation for nurses working within secure environments; day to day and long term challenges facing nurses; clinical effectiveness; the dilemma of security versus practice; how forensic nursing differs from other kinds of nursing; and what forensic nurses can contribute to other mental health care disciplines. Examples of how research findings may be integrated into practice, will be of interest not only to forensic nurses, but also to significant sectors of the mental health care field.
