Documented evidence suggests that community safety is best achieved through policies promoting human services rather than relying totally on prisons and that promoting intervention in an individual's own environment (known as 'ecological integrity') is closely associated with effective intervention.

This is the first book to focus on the transfer of knowledge of worldwide effective offender rehabilitation programs. Prominent researchers and practitioners in the criminal justice field have contributed their extensive knowledge of what it takes to implement effective correctional practices with ecological integrity.

* Reviews "real world" challenges of program effectiveness and survival

* Offers effective, evidence based, innovative alternatives to imprisonment of offenders

* Offers a common multi-level systems perspective as a framework for the international case studies featured

* The first book to focus on the transfer of knowledge and best practice through the concept of "technology transfer"
