    • Don't get mad, get even!: Overcontrol and multiple victim violence

      Bacon, Lee; Longfellow, Emma; Hamilton, Laura (2019)
      This chapter begins to explore the relationship between maladaptive overcontrol and Multiple Victim Violence. It plays particular attention to the application of Lynch's model of overcontrol to understand this behavior and its implications for intervention specifically referencing the use of Radically Open Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. Although the concept of overcontrolled offending remains in the early stages of development, this chapter considers a useful way of conceptualizing and understanding single and multiple victim violence.

    • New developments in interventions for working with offending behavior

      Jones, Lawrence F. (2019)
      This chapter discusses some criteria for justifying innovation practice. The criteria are based on common sense, experience, and pragmatism. In effect, they acknowledge that innovation is, implicitly, an active choice not to use treatment as usual and, as such, needs to be ethically and professionally grounded. Using behavioral principles in assessment and intervention for any kind of behavior would be justifiable simply because of the weight of evidence supporting the underlying theory. The past 20 years have seen a growth in the use of the “third‐wave” behavioral interventions with offender populations such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP). More recently, Jones has proposed that addressing trauma‐related and offense‐related altered states of consciousness is a critical task for those intervening with offending behavior and that the impact of altered states of consciousness on the capacity and willingness to self‐regulate needs to be more effectively recognized.
    • Predicting change for individual psychotherapy clients on the basis of their nearest neighbors

      Evans, Chris (2005)
      This study extended client-focused research by using the nearest neighbor (NN) approach, a client-specific sampling and prediction strategy derived from research on alpine avalanches. Psychotherapy clients (N = 203) seen in routine practice settings in the United Kingdom completed a battery of intake measures and then completed symptom intensity ratings before each session. Forecasts of each client's rate of change and session-by-session variability were computed on the basis of that client's NNs (n = 10-50 in different comparisons). Alternative forecasts used linear or log-linear slopes and were compared with an alternative prediction strategy. Results showed that the NN approach was superior to the alternative model in predicting rate of change, though the advantage was less clear for predicting variability.
