Emotional Literacy in Criminal Justice: Professional Practice with Offenders

Palgrave Macmillan - Emotions remain largely invisible in the management of criminal justice practice. The book examines some of the gendered implications of this practice and develops an argument for the explicit building of emotional resources within organizations to sustain the development, enhancement and support of emotional literacy in the workforce.

Using practice examples, knight reveals how practitioners can benefit from having an understanding of their own emotions and how these can impact on their practice. This unique and accessible book will be a valuable resource to practitioners across the criminal justice sector including probation officers, as well as scholars working within criminology, policymakers and managers, social workers, youth justice workers, police and prison officers, criminal justice and probation.

Emotional Literacy in Criminal Justice: Professional Practice with Offenders - This book seeks to uncover some of the underground emotional work of practitioners and make visible the impact of both positive and negative emotions, which play a crucial role in practitioner-offender relationships. Exploring how practitioners understand, knight argues that the 'soft skills' of emotion are more likely to achieve motivation and change in offenders than the 'hard' skills of punishment, regulate and work with emotion, monitoring and surveillance.

Human Trafficking: A Global Perspective

Cambridge University Press - This book examines all forms of human trafficking globally, revealing the operations of the trafficking business and the nature of the traffickers themselves. Drawing on a wide body of academic research - actual prosecuted cases, latin america, diverse reports and field work and interviews conducted by the author over the last sixteen years in Asia, Europe and the former socialist countries - Louise Shelley concludes that human trafficking will grow in the twenty-first century as a result of economic and demographic inequalities in the world, Africa, the rise of conflicts and possibly global climate change.

Coordinated efforts of government, the business community, civil society, multilateral organizations and the media are needed to stem its growth. Using a historical and comparative perspective, it demonstrates that there is more than one business model of human trafficking and that there are enormous variations in human trafficking in different regions of the world.
