This issue presents discussions relating to the optimization of treatment practices in organizational settings. Degiorgio and Lineman’s research into the stress coping abilities and motivation for treatment among DUI recidivists offers insights and predictors useful to staff delivering programs aimed at reducing DUI reoffending. Downey and McAuliffe report on the efforts of Crosspoint, Inc., a community-based residential service in San Antonio, Texas, to develop a plan aimed at enabling the agency to meet challenges in its environment. Brown contributes an informative reflection on work with female offenders and recognition of the role that prior trauma events have in the approach taken with female offenders. Finally, Russ Immarigeon, book review editor, looks at a variety of new books that cover such diverse fields as electronic monitoring, sanctioning literature, racial bias, moral panics, and incapacitation.
