This book serves as a route map for those interested in the application of psychology to the work of probation services. Starting with an outline of the strategic framework for applied psychological services across probation and prisons, the book then gives an up–to–date picture of some key emerging areas of applied psychological practice in probation settings, including: court work, mental health, working with sex offenders, risk assessment, group work, multi–agency public protection panels, lifer assessments, domestic violence work, and suicide and intentional self–injury.

The book can be effectively used alongside Graham Towl s Psychology in Prisons (BPS Blackwell, 2003).
