For many years, sentenced women were ignored or neglected, locked up in male surroundings, or lost among caseloads of men. Today, however, there are systemic approaches and interventions designed especially to meet the needs of this population. Women and Girls in the Criminal Justice System provides essential practice guidance for professionals who deal with the problems of female offenders—criminal justice policymakers … correctional administrators … probation and parole officials … ATI program administrators … vocational program agency heads … social workers … mental health clinicians … judges.
This authoritative guide from the editor of Women, Girls & Criminal Justice distills the best thinking of leading practitioners and researchers—all in a convenient single volume that puts a wealth of information within easy reach.
