As the number of women in the nation's correctional systems continues to escalate, so does the need for post-release services. Based on the edited papers of the 1998 Conference of the International Community Corrections Association, Assessment to Assistance tackles a multitude of programs exclusively for women. Continuing with the conference theme of "What Works," chapters include: Assisting Female Offenders: Art or Science?; What to Do About Girls? Thinking About Programs for Young Women; Helping Women to Recover: Creating Gender-Specific Treatment for Substance-Abusing Women and Girls in Community Correctional Settings; and Assessing Women Offenders: What Works.
