9780761927327: Sexual Deviance: Issues and Controversies

Sexual Deviance: Issues and Controversies addresses the biological, developmental, cultural, and learning factors in the genesis of sexual deviancy and links those theories to interventions with sex offenders. Edited by renowned sexual behavior experts Tony Ward, D. Richard Laws, and Stephen M. Hudson, this exceptional volume is divided into two sections. The first section covers explanations for sexual deviance, including ethical issues and classification systems for sexually deviant disorders. The second section addresses responses to sexual deviance, including traditional and modern intervention approaches.

About the Author:

Tony Ward, PhD, DipClinPsyc, is the Director of the Forensic Psychology Programme at the University of Melbourne. He was previously director of the Kia Marama Programme for sexual offenders at Rolleston Prison, Christchurch, New Zealand. His research interests include the offense process in offenders, cognitive distortions and models of rehabilitation. He has published over 110 research articles, chapters and books. These include Remaking relapse prevention, Sage, (with D.R Laws and S. M. Hudson, 2000) and the Sourcebook of treatment programs for sexual offenders, Plenum (with W. L. Marshall, Y. A. Fernandez, and S. M. Hudson, 1998). He is currently working on a book on theories of sexual offending and rehabilitation (Wiley).

Review:

bWard, Laws, and Hudson make bold assertions challenging our preconceptions of assessment and treatment. However, taking a page from their own model, they develop these in a framework of promising approaches for improving assessment and treatment outcome, giving practitioners new ideas rather than simply providing what Dr. Laws refers to as "a list of Thou-Shalt-Nots." Although many readers will wish for more explicit applications to special populations (females, developmentally delayed offenders, those in denial), this book will inform the work of virtually all ATSA members. While the authors have focused an ongoing critical eye to our work, this latest volume will challenge many of us to turn the same focus towards ourselves.b
