Criminal Justice Social Work Practice and the Study of Interaction

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract / Description of output

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.
