Drawing on the latest evidence from the disparate worlds of mental health and criminal justice, "Managing Personality Disordered Offenders in the Community" provides a practical guide to the management and treatment of a group who comprise some of the most troubled offenders, who provoke the most anxiety in our society. Illustrated throughout with relevant case examples, this book provides a detailed account of key issues in the assessment of both personality disorder and offending. Dowsett and Craissati explore the current state of knowledge regarding treatment approaches, before suggesting a framework for thinking about community management, legislation, and multi-agency practice. The book concludes with a discussion of community pilot projects currently taking place throughout England and Wales. "Managing Personality Disordered Offenders in the Community" is an accessible and informative guide for trainees and practitioners working in the fields of mental health, social services, and the criminal justice system.
