With the current correctional population in the United States approaching 2 million and a probation population of more than 5 million there is an increasing demand for effective behavioral and emotional health services from forensic practitioners. Forensic CBT: A Handbook for Clinical Practice represents the first authoritative resource on the utilization of Cognitive–Behavioral Therapy (CBT) strategies and techniques for a wide variety of offender clients.

Contributions from leading experts in the major schools of CBT offer practical guidance on the treatment of antisocial personality patterns, anger, interpersonal violence, substance abuse, and sexual aggression. This practical guidance is supplemented by an assortment of worksheets, handouts, and exercises for practitioners to use with their clients.  Coverage is also included on the use of modified CBT strategies for female, juvenile, and culturally diverse forensic populations; as well as emerging areas of forensic practices. Forensic treatment is presented from a wide spectrum of CBT approaches including Beck and Ellis, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema Focused Therapy, and criminal thinking models. Forensic CBT is an invaluable resource for practitioners working with juvenile and adult offenders in various criminal justice settings, both within institutions and in the community.
