Criminal Justice Social Work Practice and the Study of Interaction

Research output: Other contribution


A great deal of research has focused on identifying effective
practices for reducing the risks of re-offending among
people in the criminal justice system and looking at how
people move away from crime. However, little research
has analysed actual interactions between criminal justice
practitioners and service users in order to understand how
these practices work in action. This document outlines
how these interactions can be analysed and explains the
potential benefits to knowledge and practice in criminal
justice settings.
