Providing a valuable explanation of current theory and evidence as well as an emphasis on social work rather than psychological treatment, this book offers a practical and positive approach to working with people who have committed sexual offenses.  Chapters address a variety of critical issues, from the emotional impacts of facing the sex offender and the importance of values and ethics in practice to public and academic understandings of sex offenders and sex crimes and key points in contemporary practice, including assessment, intervention, and worker support.
