Description : While white racism has global dimensions, it has an unshakeable lease on life in South African political organizations and its educational system. Donnarae MacCann and Yulisa Maddy here provide a thorough and provocative analysis of South African children's literature during the key decade around Nelson Mandela's release from prison. Their research demonstrates that the literature of this period was derived from the same milieu -- intellectual, educational, religious, political, and economic -- that brought white supremacy to South Africa during colonial times. This volume is a signal contribution to the study of children's literature and its relation to racism and social conditions.

Description : Mental Illness and Crime comprehensively synthesizes and critically examines what is currently known about the relationship of mental illness and individual psychiatric disorders, in particular with criminal, violent, and other forms of antisocial behavior. The book integrates scholarship from psychology, psychiatry, clinical neuroscience, criminology, and law when presenting explanations for and etiologies of mental illness–related criminal and violent behaviors. Moreover, the book provides the reader with a diagnostic understanding of mental disorders across various classification systems, including the current DSM-5 and ICD-10. In addition, Robert A. Schug and Henry F. Fradella critically examine what is known about the treatment and social implications of this body of research, including its practical applications within the criminal justice system. Unique to the field, this text will contribute to a better understanding of criminality and violence and move society toward a greater acceptance of individuals with these illnesses.

Description : An urgent exposé of the mental health crisis in our courts, jails, and prisons America has made mental illness a crime. Jails in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago each house more people with mental illnesses than any hospital. As many as half of all people in America's jails and prisons have a psychiatric disorder. One in four fatal police shootings involves a person with such disorders. In this revelatory book, journalist Alisa Roth goes deep inside the criminal justice system to show how and why it has become a warehouse where inmates are denied proper treatment, abused, and punished in ways that make them sicker. Through intimate stories of people in the system and those trying to fix it, Roth reveals the hidden forces behind this crisis and suggests how a fairer and more humane approach might look. Insane is a galvanizing wake-up call for criminal justice reformers and anyone concerned about the plight of our most vulnerable.

Description : The Crimes of Children is the horrific journey of Charles A. Morgan. It is the true story of a mentally-ill child, compounded by severe abuse by his classmates. He was left un-medicated and untreated for almost 3 decades. This story unfolds as his behavior and decision-making get to the point where he tries to take his life many times, through overdoses, even to the point of jumping-off a major interstate bridge into the Ohio River. He wanders through life, with no friends and countless jobs, only to be hospitalized several times. Then, as a child, begins to learn how to walk. Chuck learns how to live after a near-successful suicide attempt. He was able to find his heart and his soul and, like a miracle, found forgiveness for those who hurt him so much - finding his heart, when most would have perished.

Description : The second edition of Crime and Mental Disorders is revised and reorganized to illustrate diversion and reentry opportunities for justice involved individuals who suffer from mental disorders. Priorities are informed by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, on evidence-based practices, and includes the application of the Sequential Intercept Model (SIM) to both adults and juveniles. This essential text from Denise Kindschi Gosselin is appropriate for both graduate and undergraduate courses. Broadly addressing psychiatric disorders, it is written to promote collaboration between the disciplines of criminal justice and mental health. A must-read text for any student or professional concerned with issues involving individuals living with mental disorders who come to the attention of the justice system. Organized into five sections, Crime and Mental Disorders -- Part I UNDERSTANDING MENTAL ILLNESS covers an introduction to the history of mental illness, the response history in the U.S. and an overview of issues which arise in calls for service involving individuals who have mental disorders. Part II THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE examines justice intervention which include diversion intercepts, system collaboration, and civil commitment. Part III CRIMINAL JUSTICE RESPONSES looks at law and policy which influence decision making in the three branches of criminal justice: law enforcement, the criminal court and corrections. Part IV ALTERNATIVES TO INCARCERATION reflects recent changes to reentry and community corrections. The juvenile justice chapter deals with the risks and responses to youth in the justice system who have mental health disorders. Part V MENTAL ORDERS IN CONTEXT contains a chapter on global perspectives and one which explains the diagnostic systems and disorders of individuals commonly associated with criminal justice intervention. Thought-provoking questions and an end of chapter review facilitate class discussion. "In My Experience" questions draw upon the author's career as a Massachusetts state trooper.

Description : Hundreds of thousands of the inmates who populate the nation's jails and prison systems today are identified as mentally ill. Many experts point to the deinstitutionalization of mental hospitals in the 1960s, which led to more patients living on their own, as the reason for this high rate of incarceration. But this explanation does not justify why our society has chosen to treat these people with punitive measures. In Crime, Punishment, and Mental Illness, Patricia E. Erickson and Steven K. Erickson explore how societal beliefs about free will and moral responsibility have shaped current policies and they identify the differences among the goals, ethos, and actions of the legal and health care systems. Drawing on high-profile cases, the authors provide a critical analysis of topics, including legal standards for competency, insanity versus mental illness, sex offenders, psychologically disturbed juveniles, the injury and death rates of mentally ill prisoners due to the inappropriate use of force, the high level of suicide, and the release of mentally ill individuals from jails and prisons who have received little or no treatment.
