9780398078508: A Handbook for Correctional Psychologists: Guidance for the Prison Practitioner

Correctional psychology is an area of specialization that has recently enjoyed explosive growth along with the burgeoning United States prison population and the renewed interest in providing correctional rehabilitation programs that reduce inmate recidivism. This completely revised and updated second edition continues to provide an overview of empirical findings and practices in the field. The text focuses specifically on the psychologist's role within a correctional setting and clarifies the differences in working with inmates and correctional staff from populations more commonly encountered by those working in the field of psychology. It summarizes the state of current relevant research and offers practical advice and examples for successfully transitioning into this environment. Topics covered include: trends in correctional psychology; unique aspects of the correctional work environment; the many roles and opportunities of the correctional psychologist; establishing successful relationships with staff and inmates; assessing malingering through the use of interviewing or psychometric evaluation; and contemplating a career in correctional psychology. Written for students and professionals, this book integrates the physical and psychological dangers that are inherent, the stress management principles, and the importance of maintaining supportive outside relationships and activities that will assist the correctional psychologist in overcoming any problems. This book is an excellent way of exposing graduate students to the applied aspects of psychology and/or criminal justice at the graduate level.
