This book describes the many settings in which counselling is used with offenders, victims of crime, and criminal justice professionals under stress. It reviews the political pressures which have both limited and encouraged the growth of counselling in criminal justice settings. Using case material, it explores the dilemmas - and the opportunities - for counsellors in criminal justice.

Counselling in Criminal Justice will be of interest to volunteers and professionals in the probation service, the prison service, the churches, and the voluntary sector. It draws upon research and experience of Victim Support, Rape Crisis and Generic Counselling as well as practical experience of statutory criminal justice agencies. It is also designed to assist counsellors dealing with the courts, the police and the prison and probation services for the first time.
