The Wiley Handbook on What Works with Girls and Women in Conflict with the Law

The most practical discussion of the rehabilitation of girls and women in conflict with the law in the correctional arena

What Works with Girls and Women in Conflict with the Law is the leading examination of evidence-based practice in the field of gender-responsive corrections. Adopting an international and intersectional approach, the distinguished authors seek to collect the best available data and thinking on what works with girls and women and apply it to the real-world problems facing correctional systems today.

As part of its contextual and rich approach to the subject, What Works with girls and women in conflict with the law, covers a broad variety of topics, ranging from theories of female involvement in crime, security classification and risk assessment, evidence-based treatment and supervision approaches, special populations (such as Indigenous women), to legal/policy developments in the field of gender-responsive corrections.

Perfect for students and practitioners in the field of psychology, criminology, social work, criminal justice, and corrections, this is the only reference of its kind to focus on the practical applications of the latest theory.

Since then, she has maintained an active program of research designed to improve the lives of girls and women who come in contact with the criminal justice system.
