Increasing the understanding of the impact that someone’s behaviour has on another person’s is becoming an increasingly important tool for practitioners who attempt to reduce both reoffending and other general problematic behaviours.
Its importance can be seen in the Probation Services, Youth Offending Services, Prisons and even schools who have decided to promote and implement aspects of an intervention called Restorative Justice (RJ). Using RJ, however, comes at a huge cost. This can be seen in both the training of staff to deliver it and also in the time required to undertake the intervention. So what are the alternatives?
This workbook offers creative solutions for practitioners who are working with perpetrators of offending, or other problematic and antisocial behaviour, on a one-to-one basis. It benefits from exercises that the practitioner can use with adults and young people (15+) which are easy to follow, powerful and adaptable to all different learning styles. Simply pick it up, and go!
This workbook is split into sections which makes it extremely easy to dip in and out of according to what area you want to focus on. The topics covered include, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Distortions and many more…
The workbook provides numerous exercises to work through with your client; and explains the process in great detail.
I have yet to use the resource with my service users but have definitely ear marked multiple pages which will be of great use. This is an excellent resource to use on its own; or with Jonathan’s other equally excellent resource ‘Reoffending: A practitioner’s Guide to Working with Offenders and Offending Behaviour in the Criminal Justice System’.
5 Stars and highly recommended!
There are other titles in this range of workbooks which I definitely be purchasing in the future!!!
