Training Description
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.
Please note: GIFR is the sole Continuing Education Credit provider for this CE Program. However, we do not provide the book. The book can be purchased directly from the publisher, Safer Society Press. To purchase this book, visit:
