About this item

For use in Community Corrections/Probation and Parole courses

An insider’s view of the rapidly changing field of community corrections/probation and parole Probation and Parole: Theory and Practice, Thirteenth Edition, looks at the history of the field, and how it moved from a focus on treatment/rehabilitation and the indeterminate sentence toward a model based on control/law enforcement and the determinate sentence. Written by a former community corrections professional, the author provides an insider’s view on how these changes affected the roles and responsibilities of probation and parole officers. In contrast to competing texts, the author weaves his experience with the practices of probation and parole agencies throughout the United States to provide a realistic, state-of-the-art view of the field.

Cutting-edge topics examined and critiqued include: restorative justice, broken windows/community-based supervision, place-based supervision, evidence- based practice, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, "truth-in-sentencing" and “three-strikes-and-you’re-out”. Additionally, this edition features a thorough examination of how "tough on crime” and “war on drugs” has resulted in a need for "justice reinvestment" and a new focus on community-based correction.
