9781433809422: Rehabilitating Sexual Offenders: A Strength-Based Approach (Psychology, Crime, and Justice)

While most sexual offender treatment programs take an aggressive, confrontational approach that targets the offenders' denial, research has indicated that this common approach does not appreciably alter actual risk factors related to reoffense rate. Furthermore, this approach can alienate and demoralize offenders. Over the past 40 years, William L. Marshall and colleagues have developed and refined a motivational, strength-based approach emphasizing warmth, empathy, and support for the offenders. Backed by research, this positive approach does not ignore risk factors but presents them to clients as targets for the development of strengths rather than as deficits to be overcome. Such programs in both prison and community settings achieve a broad range of treatment targets and appear to reduce recidivism for both sexual and nonsexual crimes.

This landmark volume challenges how sexual offender treatment is typically conducted. It is thought-provoking reading for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and parole and probation officers working with sexual offenders

In this wonderful book, Marshall and colleagues describe the surrounding theory and treatment strategies of their positive approach to working with adult sex offenders. Exceptionally well written and clearly structured, in many respects the book represents the fruits of a lifetime of profound reflection and innovation by one of the field's outstanding talents and pioneers. It is a brilliant achievement and provides a coherent and accurate integration of the tenets of positive psychology and strength-based perspectives with contemporary assessment and treatment techniques.---Tony Ward, PhD, Head of School of Psychology, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

This volume is a welcome addition to the small, but growing, literature on strength-based work with offenders. It is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the field of rehabilitation, whether they be practitioners, academics, or students.---Anthony Beech, PhD, Professor of Forensic Psychology, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom

Book Description American Psychological Association, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. While most sexual offender treatment programs take an aggressive, confrontational approach that targets the offenders denial, research has shown that this common approach does not alter actual criminogenic factors related to reoffence rate. Furthermore, this approach can alienate and demoralise offenders, who often report not getting anything out of it. Over the past 40 years, William Marshall and colleagues have developed and refined a motivational, strength-based approach emphasising warmth, empathy, and support for the offenders. Backed by research, this positive approach does not ignore criminogenic factors, but presents them to clients as targets for the development of strengths rather than as deficits to be overcome. The approach has paid off: such programmes in both prison and community settings consistently achieve a broad range of treatment targets and reduce recidivism for both sexual and nonsexual crimes. This book presents the evolution and distinctive features of Marshall s positive approach to treating sexual offenders. The first five chapters review research and theory on sexual offender treatment, including assessment, procedural factors, personal and interpersonal factors (such as therapist features, therapeutic alliance, and group climate), problems with common cognitive-behavioural approaches, and evaluation of treatment programmes. The last three chapters describe three treatment programs developed by Marshall and colleagues for the Canadian prison system: the Preparatory Program, which engages sexual offenders in the process of change before the main treatment program begins; the Primary Program, which targets criminogenic factors that are known to predict reoffence (problems with attitudes and cognitions, self-regulation, relationships, and sexual issues); and the Deniers Program, which also targets criminogenic factors but is tailored to the specific needs of those who deny committing a sexual offence. This landmark volume will challenge how sexual offender treatment is typically conducted. It is essential reading for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counsellors, and parole and probation officers working with sexual offenders. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781433809422
