The factors involved in rehabilitating an offender back into a family are discussed from the perspective of the assessment and treatment goals required for the offender. The sources of information available to use for assessment are described and the limitations and difficulties of each source are discussed. As a way of ensuring that all relevant factors are addressed, a model is presented which indicates which areas need to be assessed for each individual. This covers denial, social inadequacy, pro-offending attitudes and relapse prevention.
