Putting Theory into Practice

Peer-reviewed and expertly edited, the International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology is a monthly journal dedicated to providing a forum for research, discussion and treatment of variables associated with crime and delinquency. It emphasizes treatment of the offender, both as it relates to theory and to clinical practice.

Providing a Comprehensive Forum

The International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology recognizes that many disciplines are involved in and inform this area of study and practice, and seeks to provide a comprehensive forum through which treatment practices can be improved. To that end, the journal contains submissions by experts in all fields that directly affect the treatment of prisoners and offenders. These fields include: · Psychology · Psychiatry · Social Work · Law and Legal Studies · Medicine · Criminology · Criminal Justice · Corrections · Sociology · Health Sciences

Advancing Key Areas

Promoting a unique approach to the research and practice of prisoner and offender treatment, the International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology strives to grasp and advance the central aspects of the challenging phenomena of crime and delinquency.

Psychological ... because some serious psychological disorders are strikingly common among prisoners and offenders, the journal works to shed new light on their derivations and treatments, providing researchers and practitioners with innovative avenues to explore.

Genetic/Biological ... the profound effect that genetic and/or biological influences can have on prisoners and offenders is critical - so is the journal’s mandate to provide works that help researchers and practitioners to recognize, treat and ultimately overcome these factors.

Environmental ... the life history is central to understanding prisoners and offenders, and the International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology seeks to enhance the understanding of practitioners and researchers on how to address this aspect in their work.

Taking these three aspects of crime and delinquency, the International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology combines them into a focused treatment approach through pertinent and credible research that can be applied to practice.

An International Perspective

Although societies around the world differ greatly, the phenomenon of crime and delinquency does not. The International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology expands the knowledge base of researchers and practitioners by reporting on international development. The journal provides researchers and practitioners the opportunity to learn from the experiences, policies, programs and perspectives of their colleagues from around the world and to use that new information in their own work.
