There have been substantial developments in the field of program evaluation in Canada in recent years, specifically in the evaluation of justice programs. However, there is very little published material available on program evaluations of justice programs in Canada. Evaluating Justice: Canadian Policies and Programs is intended to address this need and to serve as a supplementary text and reader that provides Canadian materials and cases illustrating basic principles for organizing and doing program evaluation research. Practitioners in private practice and those employed in government as evaluators will find this book a useful source of information about the evaluation of justice programs in this country. The book contains sections on the police, courts and corrections. Each chapter consists of case studies dealing with different substantive matters and justice programs undertaken in different parts of the country. Each chapter presents basic information about the substantive program as well as the approach used in its formal evaluation. Each chapter is written by a Canadian scholar or practitioner.

In Australia about two thousand people take their own lives each year. Each incident reverberates through the community, damaging families and shattering the lives of all those involved. Suicide claims one life about every four hours and is now the leading cause of death among young males. Yet, until now, there has been no thorough study of the factors, particularly those specific to Australia, causing this tragic and major social and public health problem. In this innovative study Professor Riaz Hassan provides the first comprehensive overview of suicide in Australia. His benchmark work creates a new synthesis between existing studies and new evidence. While giving due weight to psychogenic factors, he shows that suicidal behaviour, like other forms of social behaviour, has important symbolic content. It is shaped by the same forces which influence and regulate the patterns of social life. This is a book written specifically to be accessible to the general reader. It will also be a basic text on the subject not only for students and academics in the fields of sociology, psychology, social work, law and medicine, but for professionals in the field such as teachers, police, lawyers and social workers.

Applied ethics, a subdiscipline of philosophy, lends itself to an encyclopedia format because of the many industries and intellectual fields that it encompasses. The Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics is based on twelve major categories, such as Biomedical Ethics and Environmental Ethics. Religious traditions that embody normative beliefs, as well as classical theories of ethics, are explored in a non-judgmental manner. Each of the twelve categories is divided into discrete areas that are covered by 5,000-6,000 word articles. Each of the 281 articles begins with a definition of the subject and includes a table of contents, glossary of key terms, and bibliography. Second- and third- level headings, boxes, sidebars, and the like emphasize the reference-oriented nature of the material. The four volumes are arranged in an A-Z format, with a complete subject index at the end of the last volume. Articles are written by international experts, arranged alphabetically by title, not by subject, and cross-referenced so the reader can locate relevant information in other articles.

The Concise Encyclopedia Of Ethics In Politics And The Media

With "spin" often playing an exaggerated role in politics, it is sometimes difficult to understand legal and judicial issues apart from their presentations by the media. This collection of articles combines discussions of ethical issues within and about the news and entertainment industries with descriptions of similar issues in politics. In general, the volume explores the theme of freedom versus responsibility. It can therefore serve as a resource for the person interested in theories of justice and discrimination as well as the depiction of minorities in the media. It's that ability to separate one from the other, and then to think analytically about the specific question at issue, that lies at the heart of Ethics. The book includes 30 articles previously published in the Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics and three new articles, commissioned especially for this volume. Over half of the previously published articles include updated facts and bibliographic citations. New articles include "Media Ethics, Overview", "War Reporting," and "Privacy vs. Public Right to Know."

Perhaps never before has an objective, evidence-based review of the intersection between gun violence and mental illness been more sorely needed or more timely. Gun Violence and Mental Illness, written by a multidisciplinary roster of authors who are leaders in the fields of mental health, public health, and public policy, is a practical guide to the issues surrounding the relation between firearms deaths and mental illness. Tragic mass shootings that capture headlines reinforce the mistaken beliefs that people with mental illness are violent and responsible for much of the gun violence in the United States. This misconception stigmatizes individuals with mental illness and distracts us from the awareness that approximately 65% of all firearm deaths each year are suicides. This book is an apolitical exploration of the misperceptions and realities that attend gun violence and mental illness. The authors frame both pressing social issues as public health problems subject to a variety of interventions on individual and collective levels, including utilization of a novel perspective: evidence-based interventions focusing on assessments and indicators of dangerousness, with or without indications of mental illness. Reader-friendly, well-structured, and accessible to professional and lay audiences, the book: Reviews the epidemiology of gun violence and its relationship to mental illness, exploring what we know about those who perpetrate mass shootings and school shootings. Examines the current legal provisions for prohibiting access to firearms for those with mental illness and whether these provisions and new mandated reporting interventions are effective or whether they reinforce negative stereotypes associated with mental illness. Discusses the issues raised in accessing mental health treatment in regard to diminished treatment resources, barriers to access, and involuntary commitment. Explores novel interventions for addressing these issues from a multilevel and multidisciplinary public health perspective that does not stigmatize people with mental illness. This includes reviews of suicide risk assessment; increasing treatment engagement; legal, social, and psychiatric means of restricting access to firearms when people are in crisis; and, when appropriate, restoration of firearm rights. Mental health clinicians and trainees will especially appreciate the risk assessment strategies presented here, and mental health, public health, and public policy researchers will find Gun Violence and Mental Illness a thoughtful and thought-provoking volume that eschews sensationalism and embraces serious scholarship.
