Criminal Justice and Mental Health

This textbook provides an overview for students in Criminology and Criminal Justice about the overlap between the criminal justice system and mental health. It provides an accessible overview of basic signs and symptoms of major mental illnesses and size of scope of justice-involved individuals with mental illness.In the United States, the criminal justice system is often the first public service to be in contact with individuals suffering from mental illness or in mental distress. Those with untreated mental illnesses are often at higher risk for committing criminal acts, yet research on this population continues to shed light on common myths - such a prevailing assumption that those with mental illness tend to commit more violent crimes. Law enforcement agents may be called in as first responders for cases of mental distress, and due to a lack of mental health facilities, resources, and pervasive misconceptions about this population, those with mental illness often end up in the corrections system. In this environment, students in Criminology and Criminal Justice are likely to encounter those with mental illness in their future career paths, and need to be prepared for this reality. This timely work covers the roles of each part of the criminal justice system interacting with mentally ill individuals, from law enforcement and first responders, social services, public health services, sentencing and corrections, to release and re-entry. It also covers the crucial topic of mental health for criminal justice professionals, who suffer from high rates of job stress, PTSD, and other mental health issues. The final section of the book includes suggestions for future research.This work will be of interest to students of criminology and criminal justice with an interest in working in the professional sector, as well as those in related fields of sociology, psychology, and public health. It will also be of interest to policy-makers and practitioners already working in the field. The overall goal of this work is to inform, educate, and inspire change.

Promises to Keep

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Joe Biden, the author of Promise Me, Dad, tells the story of his extraordinary life and career prior to his emergence as Barack Obama’s beloved, influential vice president.   “I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe that my chosen profession is a noble calling.”—Joe Biden    Vice President Joe Biden has both witnessed and participated in a momentous epoch of American history. In Promises to Keep, Joe Biden reveals what these experiences taught him about himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government. With his customary candor and wit, Biden movingly recounts growing up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming personal tragedy, life-threatening illness, and career setbacks; his relationships with presidents, with world leaders, and with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees. Through these and other recollections, Biden shows us how the guiding principles he learned early in life—to work to make people’s lives better; to honor family and faith; to value persistence, candor, and honesty—are the foundation on which he has based his life’s work as husband, father, and public servant. Promises to Keep is an intimate series of reflections from a public servant who surmounted numerous challenges to become one of our most effective leaders and who refuses to be cynical about politics. It is also a stirring testament to the promise of the United States. Praise for Promises to Keep “A ripping good read . . . Biden is a master storyteller and has stories worth telling.” —The Christian Science Monitor “A compelling personal story.” —The New York Times “Moving . . . [Biden’s] response to tragedy and near death [is] both admirable and likable.” —Salon

Reminiscences 1808-1815 Under Wellington
42,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

William Hay had a varied and exciting military career during the later years of the Napoleonic Wars, which took him to the Peninsula, to Waterloo, and, after 1815, to Canada. Graduating from the Royal Military College at Marlow, of which he begins his memoirs with a rare account, he was first commissioned into the crack 52nd Light Infantry and served with that regiment in the campaigns of 1810 and 1811. Promotion then took him into the 12th Light Dragoons and, after a spell at home due to illness, he joined his new regiment in the field just as Wellington¿s army began its retreat from Burgos. Thereafter, Hay served with the 12th for the remainder of the Peninsular War and again during the Waterloo campaign. A well-connected young man, he spent some of his time away from the regiment on staff duties, serving as an aide to Lord Dalhousie in the Peninsula and later to the same officer again during his tenure as Governor General of British North America. Hay¿s recollections are very much those of a dashing young officer, and, if not quite rivalling Marbot for imagination, there is no denying that he is the hero of his own epic. But these are more than just tales of derring-do, for Hay¿s stories of the lighter side of military life do much to illuminate the character and attitudes of Britain¿s Napoleonic officer corps. There is also no question but that Hay was a competent and effective officer who did good service in a number of important campaigns, and an old soldier¿s tendency to polish his recollections should take nothing from that. However, in order to help the reader better judge when Hay is remembering events with advantage, this edition of his memoirs is introduced and annotated by historian Andrew Bamford and includes additional information to identify places, people, and events and to otherwise add context to the original narrative.

While in prison and preparing for parole after serving time for the murders of his mother and father-in-law, Mark met young probation officer Gemma. After his release, they develop a relationship and move in together. Although Mark feels that he is in control, Gemma is not as naïve as he imagines; she's from a wealthy family and isn't committed to a lifetime career in the probation service. She begins to see him as a means to help her gain some revenge for the way her mother (mis)treated her father during his terminal illness. After using Mark to help her achieve her aims, Gemma becomes increasingly bored with her situation and begins to separate herself from him. Mark won't let her go easily and won't let her get away with having used him to achieve her own ends. What ensues sees Mark returning to his previous sociopathic tendencies and extreme strategies. This insightful and disturbing thriller culminates in a gripping climax set on the Adriatic coastline of Yugoslavia in the early 1980s. Praise for Murderer: On Your Mark: 'Ian Marsh has used his experience to create a worthy academic crime novel, featuring a narrator who definitely doesn't put his students first. Murderer: On Your Mark is a wicked poison pill of a debut.' Paul Johnston, CWA Dagger Winner

Dodging Dandelions

'Dodging Dandelions' is a memoir from first-time author Ron Richards. The story is a feelings-filled male perspective on a family's ability to remain positive despite, at times, seemingly insurmountable challenges that revolve around cancer and the struggles that come with trying to manage a child who is severely mentally ill. The book recounts how a husband, and his family, chose to travel the high road through multiple bouts with breast cancer; a daughter who regularly spirals out-of-control; and his two episodes with kidney cancer. In the opening chapters, Ron and his wife, Sara, deal with her initial breast cancer diagnosis when she is only 30 years old. After a six-year remission, the disease re-appears and causes another round of treatments. That occurs as their adopted daughter is only a year old and it's becoming apparent she has significant behavioral/emotional issues. As she ages, her behavior becomes increasingly abnormal and by the time she turns seven, she is hospitalized and placed on a significant regime of medicines. As time passes, her behavior continues to deteriorate and she ends up hospitalized in locked, psychiatric facilities for virtually all of her high school years. After her first recurrence, Sara's cancer remains in remission for nearly 11 years before the disease returns with a vengeance, tumors filling her liver to the point that she may not survive. An intense round of chemotherapy saves her life. Just as the eight months of chemo are coming to a close, and the couple is looking forward to time away from cancer and medical care, a coincidental ultrasound finds that Ron has a cancerous tumor in his left kidney. The disease is treated surgically and his left kidney is removed. After he recovers, the couple enjoys a few months respite from the disease but is jolted back to the cancer world when a scan shows Sara has tumors in her brain. As he considers their situation, Ron decides to change careers to serve as Sara's primary caregiver. While that allows him to be with his failing wife on a daily basis the final 3+ years of her life, the reality is that his new career provides only a fraction of their previous income. The resulting financial strain compounds the stresses of Sara's cancer in ways the couple could never have imagined. As this is happening, their daughter remains locked away in psychiatric care and the family wrestles with the mental anguish of dealing with a family member who has severe mental illness. As months pass, Sara has additional treatments and procedures and finally ends up having surgery to remove the most troublesome tumor in her brain. The surgery seemingly goes well but she loses her swallowing function, resulting in Ron feeding her four times a day through a stomach tube for the final 11 months of her life. Through it all, Sara never wavers in her commitment to 'be the best patient I can be,' and she - and the family - remains positive to the very end. As her 22-plus-year breast cancer battle comes quietly to an end, the family plans and conducts a memorial service that proves to be a testament to the lives she touched as more than 300 people fill the church sanctuary for a standing-room-only service. Throughout the book, Richards offers a genuine and honest husband's point-of-view that is filled with feeling and emotion on a level rarely seen from a male perspective. He openly shares what he learned as he negotiated his way through the disbelief, fear, anger, sadness and uncertainty he faced time and again as his wife was losing her battle and he attempted to remain upbeat and positive as he kept the family together.
