Until the systematic work on the Good Lives Model (GLM) produced by Tony Ward, not a great deal of conceptual structure existed to provide sex offender treatment specialists with a theoretical underpinning for their work in helping offenders develop a better life as a way to prevent reoffending. However, the work of Ward and colleagues initially focussed more attention to making treatment more effective, with less attention devoted to applications of the GLM to the reintegration of sexual offenders into the community.
