Constructive Work With Offenders

by Kevin Gorman, Marilyn Gregory, Michelle Hayles, Nigel Parton

Product Description

"Constructive Work with Offenders" offers a challenge to many of the assumptions of criminal justice policy and the dominant approaches to practice. The contributors advocate an emphasis on constructive work with offenders that harnesses their positive strengths and resources, and offers inclusive approaches to effective offender assessment and intervention. Taking a fresh look at much received knowledge, they proclaim that constructive work with offenders is both possible and increasingly warranted, and encourage practitioners to develop new skills and adapt existing expertise to the rapidly changing requirements of the criminal justice system. This book will be of interest to practitioners, trainers, managers, and researchers in the criminal justice system, as well as academics and students in the field of criminology and related disciplines.

About the Author

Kevin Gorman is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Huddersfield, where he contributes to degree courses in Applied Criminology, Social Work, and Police Studies. Between 1977 and 2004 he was employed as a probation officer, a role in which his supervisory and report-writing responsibilities covered virtually the whole spectrum of offending behaviour. He was also heavily involved in practice development and practice teaching, including the training of probation officers. Marilyn Gregory spent 16 years in the Probation Service, working as a main grade officer in a former mining community; as a prison based officer; court welfare officer, and finally specialist practice teacher, teaching students initially on the Diploma in Social Work and latterly the Diploma in Probation Studies. For the past four years she has taught social work at the University of Sheffield, maintaining her interest in the Probation Service by teaching in the area of crime, abuse and public protection, and by conducting research about the work of probation officers. She is also interested in the continuing professional development of professionals within the social work/social care field. Michelle Hayles spent 12 years as a probation officer in a range of community contexts and in a women's prison. From 1991 to 1994 she managed a Home Office Student Training Unit and continued to maintain links with practice in her subsequent role as a manager responsible for staff development and for qualifying training. She moved into a full time academic post in 1999 to manage the University's involvement in the new probation officer training. She is currently a Senior Lecturer in Community Justice at the University of Huddersfield where she has leadership responsibilities for the BSc (Hons) in Applied Criminology and for an innovative Foundation Degree in Police Studies. Nigel Parton is Professor in Child Care and Director of the Centre of Applied Childhood Studies, in the School of Human and Health Sciences at the University of Huddersfield. He has a particular interest in the area of child protection and is the author of Safeguarding Childhood: Early Intervention and Surveillance in a Late Modern Society and co-author, with Patrick O'Byrne, of Constructive Social Work: Towards a New Practice. From 1995 to 2005 he was co-editor of the journal Children and Society (published in association with the National Children's Bureau).
