Author Balfour, Michael St Clair
Year Published 2003
Place of publication Lampeter, UK
Publisher Edwin Mellen Press
Abstract This study examines male criminal violence; its causes and explanations; and how creative drama-based criminal justice programs can respond to working with violent men. It will serve as a guide to innovative creative arts work in criminal justice settings, as a discussion of research methods, and as a series of recommendations for professional practice. It provides practical examples of how theory, empirical research and multi-disciplinary professional practice can be integrated to develop more innovative creative responses to male violence. Drawing on five years of programme experience with offenders, five sections provide step-by-step instruction on how to use drama based interventions in programmes dealing with violent behavior. It will interest scholars and practitioners in the fields of criminology and criminal justices, arts therapies, psychology, and the performing arts.
