February 1991 | 360 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Enhanced public awareness of sexual abuse and an increase in the number of reported sexual abuse cases has put pressure on practitioners to develop effective treatments for offenders. The behavioural approach to treating offenders is flourishing, but clinicians sometimes lack sufficient knowledge of assessment techniques and of the wide variety of available treatment modalities. This volume fills these gaps in knowledge by describing a multitude of techniques for treating sexual offenders in either an outpatient or inpatient setting.
