From the Back Cover:

The treatment and management of sexual offenders is a topic of great interest, but while much has been written about the treatment of sexual offenders generally, little has been written about the comprehensive treatment of groups of specifically high risk sexual offenders. Treatment of High-Risk Sexual Offenders addresses concrete management strategies, from initial intake to community treatment programs, and describes a detailed, complete program for high risk offenders which has been developed, tested and refined over 15 plus years, and has a strong empirical basis.

The model, which is based on the principle of integrative care, draws on the established Risk-Need-Responsivity (RNR) model for offender assessment and rehabilitation but adds new components of CBT and motivational interviewing. It gives specific consideration to the role of mental disorder and complex trauma in the development and maintenance of offending behaviour, areas which can often be neglected. Given the complex nature of this population, treatment focuses on both traditional criminogenic needs not specific to sexual offenders (e.g. substance abuse, criminal thinking styles) and sex offender specific issues (e.g. deviant arousal, intimacy deficits) in an integrated approach. A variety of outcome data related to two sex offender treatment programs managed by the authors, and described in detail, is included in the text.
