Effective Interventions with Offenders: Lessons Learned

Author(s): Ken McMaster & David Riley (editors)

Social Work | NZ Non-Fiction

The view of the 1970s and '80s - that in terms of rehabilitation programmes, nothing works - continues to exert an influence that is no longer deserved. Over the last twenty years more than 2000 published evaluations and 75 meta-analyses have shown that carefully designed and delivered interventions can make a real difference to reoffending rates.

What are the keys to an effective programme? This book offers answers drawn from the research and experience of New Zealand practitioners across the field - including learnings from those who work with offenders in prison and in the community, with men and women, with youth and with Maori and Pacific people.
