This article completes a two-part history of groupwork in probation during the 20th Century. The first part traced the development of this aspect of probation work as an important part of the theory and practice of supervising probationers in the community. This second part purports to show the burgeoning significance and relevance of work with groups, and how it encouraged a more collaborative approach focused more specifically on the offence. More particularly, it explores its contribution to, on the one hand evidence-based practice and on the other, increased governance both of probationers and of probation policy and practice.
