Correctional Counseling: A Cognitive Growth Perspective shows students how to address a correctional clients needs during imprisonment and how to prepare clients for release into the community. Using the cognitive growth model to examine the major issues in correctional counseling, this text covers the counselor roles, work settings and challenges, offender classification and assessment, counseling processes, and intervention/therapeutic techniques. Students learn to respond effectively to correctional clients not only by taking their crimes and experiences into account, but also by looking at how offenders view themselves and their actions.
