The four chapters of Section 2 focus on crisis-intervention components and strategies and police-based social work. Section 3 is composed of five chapters that examine the assessment and treatment of juvenile delinquents, juvenile justice policy developments, and the role of the social worker in juvenile justice settings. The five chapters of Section 4 address issues related to victim assistance, child maltreatment, domestic violence crisis intervention, and trauma care. Section 5 contains four chapters that explore probation, parole, and court settings. The six chapters of Section 6 focus on the social worker's role in adult corrections in institutional and community-based settings. These chapters consider relevant social-worker training, service to female offenders, reentry into the community, and the function of social workers in a maximum-security prison.
