Comments Off

This article is a practitioner response to ‘Structured decisions about Dutch probation service interventions’ by Jacqueline Bosker, Cilia Witteman and Jo Hermanns published in the June 2013 edition of Probation Journal. Bosker et al.’s (2013) article suggested that the next logical step from structured risk assessment would be a more structured form of planning the decision making process for interventions based on the assessed criminogenic need. This response questions the basis of this assumption in relation to the burgeoning probationer engagement and desistance practice agenda.

Control or change? Developing dialogues between desistance research and public protection practices

March 11, 2014 by  
Filed under Probation

Comments Off

This article aims to scope out some of the implications of desistance research for the community management of high risk offenders. Acknowledging the limited empirical research exploring this interface, this article outlines the evolving evidence base and what this tells us about the process of desistance and what supports it. The evidence as to whether ‘high risk offenders’ desist and what we know about this process is discussed prior to a consideration of the orientation of current practice approaches which can be located in the community/public protection model. Potential dialogues between desistance research and public protection practices are discussed to explore ensuing implications and opportunities for practice.

Integrated approaches to domestic violence? An exploration of the role of the victim and Women’s Safety Work in cognitive-behavioural programmes

March 11, 2014 by  
Filed under Probation

Comments Off

This article examines the role of the victim and, more specifically, the nature of Women’s Safety Work within cognitive-behavioural programmes designed to address the attitudes and behaviour of men with convictions for violence against their partners. It is an increasingly important part of probation practice. The article draws on an empirical study conducted in 10 probation areas across England and Wales. It identifies, and critically examines, the factors which shape working with victims of domestic violence. These include the challenge of engaging partners and ex-partners with Women’s Safety Work; the ‘contested’ nature of work with women; and facets of risk management. This article is written with a practitioner focus in mind and implications for practice are discussed.
