Click here to watch a video clip of Fergus discussing his desistance research.  This clip refers to a chapter they co-authored with Beth Weaver entitled ‘Traveling Hopefully: Desistance Research and Probation Practice’ where the metaphor of a journey is used to depict the process of desistance (. Fergus also refers to a co-authored literature review, called ‘Changing Lives?: Desistance Research and Offender Management’ which explores desistance from crime and the purposes of offender management . You may also be interested to read the text of a recent talk by Fergus about desistance presented to the National Offender Management Service Conference in March 2010.
