This is a valuable new guide to the practice of Vedanta and inner yoga: a priceless collection of spiritual instructions from Swami Ashokananda (1893-1969) to his close American disciples. Vedanta's eternal truths come alive in Swami Ashokananda's down-to-earth words of encouragement and advice. More than eight hundred passages for contemplation shed light on the spiritual path. Early chapters such as "The Agony of Conflict" and "The Secrets of Suffering" show how to cope with common problems; later chapters such as "Be Calm" and "Meditate" guide readers toward a higher state of consciousness. "Shafts of Light" illumines the heart of spiritual practice-its teachings can help seekers from any tradition enjoy a deeper spiritual life."Swami Ashokananda was a brilliant and accomplished spiritual teacher in the West."-HUSTON SMITH "Swami Ashokananda's words ignited in his listeners the longing for realization on their own."-AMERICAN VEDANTIST"Swami Ashokananda brought courage and strength to hundreds of lives."-THE BEACON

There is a large body of research that provides guidance for those working with offenders on how they should be treated once they are in the correctional system. The problem is that most, if not all this research has been conducted on all male populations and it is assumed that women offenders are the same. However, women have different needs and support systems than men in some areas of their lives and it is unclear whether all research based on men can be generalized in this way. The book provides a review of the research literature to guide evidence-based practice in the assessment and treatment of adult female offenders. An historical overview of women’s crime and imprisonment will be followed by a global review of various theories of female criminality. The remainder of the book reviews the psychology of criminal conduct, with a specific focus on three psychological principles of effective intervention: risk, need and responsivity. Respectively, these principles set the “who”, “what” and “how” for correctional intervention.
