In 2019, the field of correctional and forensic psychology sadly lost a key and influential figure with the passing of Dr. J. Stephen Wormith. As a critical proponent and pioneer of the risk-need-responsivity or RNR model (Andrews & Bonta, 1994-2010; Bonta & Andrews, 2017), Wormith was an advocate for creative, novel, and effective approaches for the assessment, treatment, and management of justice-involved clients (JICs)—this included highly practical resources such as Tafrate et al.’s (2018) CBT with Justice-Involved Clients. Prior to his passing, Wormith had in fact nominated the triumvirate of authors for receipt of the Significant Contribution Award from the Criminal Justice Section of the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) for the present work reviewed here. And deservedly, the authorship trio were successful and received this distinction in May 2019, at the 4th North American Correctional and Criminal Justice Psychology Conference (N4) coinciding with the annual CPA convention in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. There is very good reason why this book was so nominated and received this distinction. CBT with Justice-Involved Clients is an immensely comprehensive, practical, and accessible resource for criminal justice practitioners. We would absolutely use this treatment planner in our intervention work with JICs and our clinical training activities in the field and here’s why.
