about

This rigorous survey offers a comprehensive rethinking of the assessment and treatment of sexual offenders for a bold challenge to practitioners. It critiques what we understand about offenders and the mechanisms of offending behaviors, and examines how this knowledge can best be used to reduce offending and relapses.

To this end, experts weigh the efficacy of common assessment methods and interventions, the value of prevention programs, and the validity of the DSM''s classifications of paraphilias. This strengths/weaknesses approach gives professional readers a guide to the current state as well as the future of research, practice, and policy affecting this complex and controversial field.

Included in the coverage:

    will generate discussion and interest among forensic psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and social workers.
