When violent offenders are referred to treatment, it is imperative that treatment providers recognize treatment process challenges and their impact on the selection of effective treatment strategies and approaches. Recognizing challenges to successful treatment allows providers to adapt their treatment approaches and the desired treatment outcomes. Clearly stated desired treatment outcomes are particularly important when working with violent client populations; you need to know what defines success for each offender. Does it mean the offender will never be violent or aggressive again? Does it mean the offender will do less harm to those around him or her than in the past? Or will successful treatment result in the offender not returning to prison with the conviction of a violent crime? An agreed-upon treatment outcome and ensuing successful treatment have implications for the violent offender and society at large.
