Applying the Good Lives Model to the Case Management of Sexual Offenders
A Practical Guide for Probation Officers, Parole Officers, and Case Workers
by Mayumi Purvis, Ph.D., Tony Ward, Ph.D, and Simone Shaw
Tony Ward developed the Good Lives Model a decade ago. He and his co-authors, Mayumi Purvis and Simone Shaw, were part of the team that implemented a specialist case management model for sexual offenders at Corrections Victoria in Australia. The book is based upon that foundation of practical experience. The authors explain the core theories, principles and practices they believe should drive the case management of sexual offenders.

“The authors of this book have succeeded in presenting us with a clear, comprehensive, cutting-edge roadmap for how to provide case management services for sex offenders based on the Good Lives Model. It balances the importance of risk management with the imperative of helping individuals develop prosocial attitudes and skills in order to lead a ‘good life’ that is incompatible with offending. This practical guide is an essential resource for probation officers, parole officers, and case managers.”
