Forensic InService discusses the application of psychiatric, psychological, and social work evidence-based practice to matters of assessment and treatment, law, corrections, crime, and delinquency. We examine such concerns as the insanity defense, the high incarceration rate of individuals with mental illness, encounters with law enforcement, and the community management of sex offenders, as well as such macro concerns as the availability of treatment services, public perceptions of people with mental illness, and concerns related to social justice.

Offense Cycles

     As a follow-up to our last episode on Relapse Prevention with an Offender Population, in this episode we discuss offense cycles and node-link mapping. Both of these models are compatible with treatment programs based in relapse prevention that rely on cognitive-behavioral approaches. For this episode we also have a corresponding blog post, titled The Lapse Map. Contained within that blog post is a free download of a general lapse map we created during our work with sex offenders and recently updated.     As an additional bonus, please see our post under the category Risk Assessment entitled Assessing Probability to Sexually Re-Offend. In this post I provide a factitious case and score it on the Static-99R. This material is also free for professionals to access.
