In Gangsters: Fifty Years of Madness, Drugs, and Death on the Streets of America, Lewis Yablonsky provides answers to the most baffling and crucial questions regarding gangs. How has the American gang evolved into its current structure? What prompts young people to participate in violent behavior? What can be done to extract adolescents from the gangster world of crime, death, and incarceration once they have become involved? Using information gathered from over forty years of experience working with gang members and based on hundreds of personal interviews, conducted in prisons and gang neighborhoods, Yablonsky explores the pathology of the gangsters' apparent addiction to incarceration and death, presenting his sophisticated analysis in an engaging and personal style
Psychodrama : resolving emotional problems through role-playing by Lewis Yablonsky( Book )

19 editions published between 1976 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this clear and spirited book, Dr. Lewis Yablonsky, a pioneer for over twenty-five years in psychodrama and group psychotherapy, explains how the emotional and social problems in one's life may be untangled through the use of psychodrama. Unlike most forms of therapy, which rely upon the gradual attainment of insight and self-awareness, psychodrama produces an immediate and intense emotional experience and a resulting resolution that exceeds the traditional method of "understanding" a problem. The peak experiences of psychodrama give the participants- both the protagonists and the auxiliary actors- a chance to relive, to replay, the events and emotions, the joy, pain, conflict, and grief we so rarely understand while we are experiencing them in our everyday lives. Dr. Yablonsky shows in precise detail the way in which self-help psychodrama groups can be organized to resolve problems between parent and child, husband and wife, teacher and student. -- from Book Jacket

Gangs in court by Lewis Yablonsky( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gangs that exist in our society today are notorious for committing violent crimes, murder, and drug dealing. Society sees gangs as being tightly knit organizations that are out to make profits through crime sprees and drug deals. However, society's perception may not be accurate. "Gang laws" around the nation are drastically extending the prison sentences of criminals who are believed to be gang members. But how do we really know when a crime is gang-related or how involved the perpetrator was in a gang? Youths are often mistakenly identified as gang members because of where they live and with whom they associate. They are even prosecuted for being in the "wrong place at the wrong time." This mistake can add years to a person's jail time and often sends them away for life. With over fifty years experience working with gang members in and out of prison, Dr. Lewis Yablonsky educates you on the ins and outs of the gang world. He covers the history of gangs in the United States and compares historical gang behavior to contemporary gang behavior to give you an understanding of their similarities and differences. He informs you of contemporary gang characteristics and behaviors including racial and ethnic issues, drugs, family issues, violence, emotional, psychological and social issues, gangsters as sociopaths, criminal and non-criminal gang activity, gang social structure, the roles of members within the gang, six categories of gang status, and more. He gives you relevant information on the death penalty as compared to life in prison sentences of gang members. He gives examples of the Therapeutic Community model for treating gang members sentenced to jail time. Dr. Yablonsky also supplies you with numerous case studies, where he served as an expert witness, on notable gang-related court cases. As a defense or prosecuting attorney, police officer, psychologist, expert witness, or other professional involved with criminal cases involving gang members, you will gain invaluable insights into gangs and gang behavior and the legal process related to gang-related behavior and criminal activity
