Abstract

This article will consider how desistance research relates to the purposes of case management. Drawing on research evidence about the process of desistance this paper considers what kinds of interventions and practice approaches appear to support it. The paper concludes with an exploration of the potential implications of desistance research for the construction and process of case management with offenders.
