There is no one size fits all in the treatment of adolescent sex offenders. Manual for Structured Group Treatment with Adolescent Sex Offenders
Current theory regarding adolescent sex offenders has shown that adolescent offenders differ significantly from adult offenders in that adolescents continue developing after offense. Manual for Structured Group Treatment with Adolescent Sex Offenders, revised for release in 2007, focuses on treatment of adolescent offenders by encouraging youth to build on individual strengths and produce healthy lifelong behavior while teaching youth to recognize and correct problem thoughts and behavior. The authors promote endowing the adolescent with tools to avoid both sexual reoffense and general delinquent offense alike.
Activities, games, and exercises are easily adapted to individual or group treatment settings, to meet specific program requirements, and to increase comprehension and response from offenders at differing levels of mental development and progress in treatment. The voices of the authors inspire those who work with adolescent offenders to create a safe and fun setting for change and healthy development.

"This is a well-conceived book which I strongly endorse. It will be greatly valued by therapists who work with adolescent sex offenders." - Hank Giarretto, Ph.D. "This manual is rich in what clinicians have been requesting: detailed, structured exercises that facilitate disclosure and enable adolescents to verbalize thoughts and feelings, and exercises that help gain mastery and control of sexual urges. The book tells the reader how to establish a therapeutic environment that is safe, respectful and fun." - Beverly James, L.C.S.W. (From the Preface)About the Author:
