dc.description.abstractThe aim of this book is to assemble and present various methods that are being used to identify and use offence paralleling behavior (OPB). Our intended audience is academics and clinicians who are interested in case formulation within forensic psychology and others who are explicatively researching or using OPB in their clinical practice. We also hope this book will be a stimulus for empirical research and further conceptual and theoretical refinement of this framework. At present, there is an absence of empirical evidence to support any one particular offence paralleling methodology. The varied approaches to the assessment of OPB are offered for readers to consider, scrutinize, evaluate and apply, if appropriate. In calling for contributions to this book, we were specifically interested in similarities and differences in approaches to offence paralleling behavior (OPB) conceptualization and use. After reviewing the chapters, it is fair to say that there is more similarity than difference. In the following section, we present the major areas of similarity and comment on some important differences in conceptualization and recommendations for practice. We shall express what we believe are important considerations for practitioners invoking the OPB framework. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)(chapter)
