Working within the Incarcerated Environment

Edited by Wesley T. Church,II and David W. Springer

  • First comprehensive volume devoted exclusively to examining the scope of the problems, risks, and evidence-based institutional and community-based interventions of populations within the criminal justice system
  • Features the contributions of over 30 prominent scholars — writing from perspectives in social work, psychology, criminal justice, sociology, social service administration, law, and corrections — each with extensive knowledge and expertise in a specific area of the criminal justice system
  • Provides a comprehensive discussion of the critical issues, public policies, and intervention strategies and programs that are effective in serving distinct criminal justice populations
  • Uses case studies to present the latest data indicating that treatment/training and education, as well as alternative sentencing, is more beneficial than punitive sanctions for inmates
