This title aims to provide a comprehensive and up to date review of the relationship between psychology, morality and offending behaviour. It sets out the theory and research which has been carried out in the field, and examines the ways in which this knowledge has been used in practice to inform treatment programmes for offenders - in a variety of different settings (prisons, residential settings, in the community).;The book is aimed at forensic psychologists and others with an interest in the development of rehabilitation programmes for offenders.;Moral reasoning is set firmly within the wider spectrum of approaches to offending behaviour.
