This latest collection of articles reflects the most recent developments in the field while offering practical information about how to apply these innovations to your practice. The internationally recognized authors from England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada and the United States span several different professional disciplines, providing you with a solid evidence-based foundation from which to work. Just a sampling of the nearly 20 chapters cover topics such as: a new framework for assessing a child's risk to repeat concerning sexual behaviors (Tracey Curwen); a step-by-step approach to responding to sexual behaviors in children and youth with learning disabilities (Joanne Butterworth and Tim Plan); typologies of adolescents who sexually harm and associated risk factors, modus operandi and criminal activities (Nicole Hickey); and a CBT-based treatment approach to reducing shame and increasing responsibility with adolescents who have sexually offended (James Worling, Nina Josefowitz and Melissa Malter). This volume offers the experienced practitioner invaluable information about the most recent developments and offers others interested in beginning this work a fascinating overview from which to start.
