The SAGE Encyclopedia of Criminal Psychology will be a modern, interdisciplinary resource aimed at students and professionals interested in the intersection of psychology (e.g., social, forensic, clinical), criminal justice, sociology, and criminology. The interdisciplinary study of human behavior in legal contexts includes numerous topics on criminal behavior, criminal justice policies and legal process, crime detection and prevention, eyewitness identification, prison life, offender assessment and rehabilitation, risk assessment and management, offender mental health, community reintegration, and juvenile offending. The study of these topics has been increasing continually since the late 1800s, with people trained in many legal professions such as policing, social work, law, academia, mental health, and corrections. This will be a comprehensive work that will provide the most current empirical information on those topics of greatest concern to students who desire to work in these fields. This encyclopedia is a unique reference work that looks at criminal behavior primarily through a scientific lens. With over 500 entries the book brings together top empirically driven researchers and clinicians across multiple fields—psychology, criminology, social work, and sociology—to explore the field.

Family Crisis Intervention

From Concept to Implementation

This monograph explains the concept that underlies police family-crisis intervention training and discusses some guidelines and problems in organizing such a program. In order to explain the importance of the term "family crisis intervention" as originally defined, the author discusses two areas of human behavior that relate to this police function: interpersonal conflict management and crisis intervention theory and practice. The second major section of the monograph focuses on organizational and operational considerations in introducing family-crisis intervention training in a police agency. Given that organizational change inevitably stimulates ambivalence in the personnel affected by the change, police managers must respect and address this ambivalence if the change is to be achieved effectively. The change must also have clearly defined incentives and rewards. Means must be found to reward the high degree of competence required in police family crisis intervention. Three models for police family crisis intervention are profiled, followed by descriptions of three training models: intensive training, field training, and combined intensive and field training, which holds the greatest promise if properly conceived and implemented. In discussing police agency relationships with other agencies, the monograph advises that an effective strategy of family crisis intervention requires the establishment of working relationships between the police and other agencies of the helping system.
