Description - Identifying and Treating Sex Offenders by Robert Geffner

Gain a better understanding of the behaviors of sex offenders to create effective interventions! Identifying and Treating Sex Offenders: Current Approaches, Research, and Techniques brings you up-to-date on the latest significant issues and state-of-the-art tools involved in the evaluation and treatment of adult sex offenders. This book provides you with current data regarding what is known about sex offenders, so that appropriate assessment, treatment, and prevention methods can be developed and utilized. Experts in the field discuss controversial topics--including diagnoses, classification, public notification, and risk assessment--to help psychologists, therapists, and social workers better understand this specialized population. In Identifying and Treating Sex Offenders, you'll learn more about the problems in defining sexual assault and sexual deviance, which in turn impede appropriate interventions. This book dispels many stereotypical assumptions with accurate information about sex offender statistics and research for lawmakers to use in creating policies and legal statutes that successfully deter recidivism in known sex offenders. This extensive resource paves the way towards a methodology that prevents sexual abuse from occurring in the first place. Identifying and Treating Sex Offenders explores a variety of assessment and treatment techniques, including: * medical treatment * skill-building methods such as enhancing empathy * therapy * polygraphy * psychopharmacology * and much more! Identifying and Treating Sex Offenders is a thorough review and discussion of the theological, forensic, and rehabilitation issues surrounding the adult sex offender and the people associated with him or her. Special features of this book include a variety of tables, recommendations, and models on risk factors, types of sexual offenses and deviances, and recidivism research.
