The Second Edition of Counseling Criminal Justice Offenders recognizes that individuals who counsel offenders in the criminal justice system often have not had the extensive training of a licensed psychologist and this text is designed to provide readers with an understanding of the counseling process. The book explores practical knowledge of legal principles, appropriate and effective counselor attitudes, and the past and present protocols of American corrections.
Features and Benefits:Each chapter begins with Chapter Highlights and Key Terms and ends with corresponding exercises and discussion questions. A section at the end of each chapter lists relevant Internet sites and suggested readings. The book includes Counselor/Offender role-play scenarios that prepare students for situations such as how to restore order over a group counseling session, handle their own personal feelings about an offender, and much more. An Instructor’s Manual including test items and skill-building exercises is available.
New to the Second Edition:Chapters have been reorganized to emphasize the importance of counselors creating an alliance with offenders. Discussions have been updated on topics such as multicultural counseling, counseling victims, counseling paraprofessionals, cognitive-behavioral counseling, multimodal counseling, brief counseling, and counseling outcome effectiveness. New chapters have been added on counseling criminal psychopaths, the role of emotions in the counseling process, counseling male and female offenders, and the relationship between trauma, addiction, and human behavior.
Primarily designed for criminal justice students taking correctional counseling courses, Counseling Criminal Justice Offenders, Second Edition is also a vital resource for any Criminal Justice, Social Work, Psychology, or Counseling practitioner interfacing with offenders.
