Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Mandated for work in the juvenile justice system by the federal government and highly recommended for work with adult female offenders as well, the gender sensitive approach takes into account the special needs of girls and women. Addressing this gap in the literature, this book shows how professionals can address the needs of female offenders. Social workers, counselors, psychologists, and correctional officers who work with female offenders are provided with counseling skills in treating female offenders on anger management, communication, stress management, and other issues.
