The goal of this series is to improve the quality of health care services in forensic and correctional settings by providing a forum for discussing issues and disseminating resources related to policy, administration, clinical practice, and research.
The series addresses topics such as mental health law; the organization and administration of forensic and/or correctional services for persons with mental disorders; the development, implementation and evaluation of treatment programs and interventions for individuals in civil and criminal justice settings; the assessment and management of violence risk, including risk for sexual violence and family violence; and staff selection, training, and development in forensic and/or correctional systems.
The book series will consider proposals for both monographs and edited works on these and related topics, with special consideration given to proposals that promote evidence-based best practices and that are relevant to international audiences. Workbooks and manuals targeted toward practitioners and reflecting evidence-based practice and intervention will also be considered.
