Treating Sex Offenders: A Guide to Clinical Practice with Adults, Clerics, Children, and Adolescents, Second Edition updates the groundbreaking original with new material that integrates adolescent and adult sex offenders, emphasizing similarities and differences in personality type, behavior, and treatment.

This vital new edition includes appropriate additions and changes to treatment techniques, progress reports on case study subjects, reader feedback on the original book, and perhaps most important, new information on religious personnel who molest children. Treating Sex Offenders provides training in clear language for those working with sexual offenders and explanations in simple terms for those suffering as a result of their actions. The book parallels workshops and courses conducted by the author, detailing how to identify major characteristics and traits of offenders, different types of offenders, child and adolescent offenders, how to recognize warning signs of deviant behavior, and how to apply specific treatment techniques that really work. Individual aspects of the makeup and treatment of the compulsive adult and adolescent sex offender are addressed through factors, traits, treatment, and candid cases studies. Treating Sex Offenders addresses the most vital issues involving sexual pathology, including: inadequate personality theory sexual performance problems imprinting self-confrontation sex as the chosen deviation the five c's of sex offender treatment and much more! Treating Sex Offenders: A Guide to Clinical Practice with Adults, Clerics, Children, and Adolescents, Second Edition is an essential resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and those in the criminal justice field who deal with sex offenders on a daily basis. Family members involved in the lives of sex offenders and survivors of sexual abuse or assault will find the case studies enlightening in making sense of a tragic situation.
