   Guest Editor's Foreword: Special Issue on
   Offender Assessment


In December  of 2006 I was  approached by  Haworth  Press with the
idea of developing a  thematic special double issue of the Journal
of Offender Rehabilitation. By mid  December   we had  agreed that
the topic would be offender assessment. It is now May 1, 2007 and
I am pleased to report that this special issue is complete.
   Offender assessment is a timely topic and of considerable signifi-
cance. It is also inextricably intertwined with offender treatment
and  rehabilitation. Treatment informs assessment  and assessment
informs treatment.
   This special issue on offender assessment is the result of the efforts
of all of the 19 contributors who have provided the nine articles which
were accepted for publication. For editorial assistance in the review
of manuscripts, I thank Bethany L. Gelinas and Sabrina M. R. Brady.
For peer review of manuscripts, I thank Michelle M. DeLisle, David
M.  Gill, Peter J. Lee, Richard N. MacLennan, Zdravko Marjanovic,
and Sarah  Vander Veen.
   Two  articles in the issue deal with juvenile offenders. For the
article examining executive function in female delinquents with the
Cognitive Assessment  System, there is a parallel paper dealing with
executive function in male delinquents in the Journal of Offender
Rehabilitation (Volume  44, issue 4). The  other juvenile offender
paper deals with sex offenders in residential treatment and their rank-
ings of therapeutic factors using the Yalom Card  Sort. It extends
similar work reported in 1999 in the Journal of Offender Rehabili-
tation with adult sex offenders. A further paper deals with neuropsy-
chological function in adult  inmates as compared   to psychiatric
patients and community  controls. In addition to extensive normative
data, a series of epidemiological and treatment implications are pro-
vided. Another  paper deals with suicide screening in adult inmates
