About the Course:
The Correctional Mental Health Handbook is the first book to offer a comprehensive overview of the services provided by correctional mental health professionals for the various populations found in correctional programs and facilities. Edited by Thomas J. Fagan and Robert K. Ax, experts with over 40 years of correctional mental health experience, this unique handbook is divided into three sections. The first section provides a flexible model for organizing mental health services based on staffing levels, facility mission, and local need. The second section considers typical offender problems in many correctional systems and how they are customarily managed. The third section presents various clinical and consultative activities offered by mental health professionals within correctional settings.
A distinguished group of practitioners and scholars combine years of experience and cutting-edge research to examine: the ethics of correctional mental health practice,
practitioner roles within the correctional community,
core mental health services for both single offenders and special need groups, program planning and release preparation for inmates, mental health services offered to institution staff, training hostage and crisis negotiators, and future trends in correctional mental health. This indispensable text explains the general characteristics and treatment needs of specific inmate populations including: substance dependent offenders, female offenders, sexual predators, and juvenile offenders.
This course is based on the book, Correctional Mental Health Handbook created by Thomas J. Fagan, Ph.D. and Robert K. Ax, Ph.D.
