This book serves as a route map for psychologists and probation officers working in probation services. It outlines the strategic framework for psychological services across prisons and probation. It gives an up-to-date picture of some key emerging areas of applied psychological practice in probation settings. It covers the development of applied psychological services, court work, mental health, working with sex offenders, risk assessment, group work, cognitive skills, multi-agency public protection panels, and lifer assessments. The editors are Deputy Head and Head of Psychology for Prisons and Probation Services, and therefore well placed to compile this book. This book complements Graham Towl's book "Psychology in Prisons" (BPS Blackwell, 2003).
