A potent combination of theory and practice, this new paperback edition addresses a variety of justice issues, such as whether prisoners with developmental disabilities are discriminated against, what form of sentencing should be applied to them, and appropriate assessment and treatment regimes.

The second part of this book focuses on the practical application of theories considered in Part 1, and includes case studies and a list of resources for clinicians.
