      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.
