Abstract

This chapter explores the work and interactions of both staff and residents within
probation approved premises, placing this in the wider context of risk management and
rehabilitation. Drawing on two ethnographic studies undertaken within approved
premises, it is argued that current practice fosters a working culture which promotes the
social segregation and isolation of sex offenders which is counter-productive to
resettlement and rehabilitation work. The chapter concludes by suggesting an alternative,
constructive regime for residential work with sex offenders, which aims to holistically
manage sex offenders’ risks whilst supporting them to address their offending behaviours
and attitudes.
