Details

This study was designed to explore the dynamic risk factors that predict reoffending for women compared to men. Drawing on large samples of men and women in prison or on probation this study was designed to first describe the prevalence of various criminogenic risk factors among men and women and then tested which most strongly predicted reoffending. While the profile of risk factors was broadly similar for men and women some significant differences emerged which have implications for the design of rehabilitative services responsive to the specific needs of women.
