Summary
The number of women prisoners has been growing rapidly during recent years and in many places has more than doubled in the past decade. However most of the research and publications in this area are related to men. There is a lack of literature relating to women offenders and for this reason the book is clearly needed. "What Works with Women Offenders" provides a comprehensive analysis of issues relating to work with women offenders with chapters written by academics or professionals with a high degree of expertise in their specific field. Its practical focus will enable readers to apply the material presented to direct work with offenders. The book takes an international focus, making it relevant to academics and practitioners who work in this field around the world
