"A first on several fronts this book succeeds in delivering evidence-based ?practical knowledge to all those working with young people in forensic mental health settings. The underpinning practical approach to psychological thinking and practice is also developmentally informed, formulation driven, rightly acknowledging the challenge and complexity of working with young people who find themselves in forensic mental health settings. This book is greatly enriched by a chapter co-written by a young person and its contents will empower practitioners to improve life outcomes for such young people. Both editors and authors are to be congratulated on producing a book that has real utility for practitioners." - Professor Dame Sue Bailey, Chair of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, UK
"Beginning, as all our books should, by looking through the eyes of our clients themselves, this important book provides a psychologically informed guide to working with young people in forensic settings that will be of great value to both the student and the practitioner with its rich case studies and a dynamic mix of perspectives." - Shadd Maruna, Dean, Rutgers School of Criminal Justice, USA
