Abstract

Focuses on processes and interventions aimed at reducing offending and assisting offenders to reintegrate and desist from crime. A recent strand of inquiry is concerned with research on very early preventative interventions and research on risk factors. Summarises some findings on the effectiveness of psychotherapy and counselling in reducing problematic behaviour and supporting the change process.
