Description - The Wiley Handbook of What Works with Sexual Offenders: Contemporary Perspectives in Theory, Assessment, Treatment, and Prevention by Jean Proulx

From a rehabilitation series-what works for those who've sexually offended
The Wiley Handbook of What Works with Sexual Offenders is an important addition to the What Works in Offender Rehabilitation handbook series. This handbook specifically looks at the topics of sexual offender theory, assessment, rehabilitation, prevention, policy, and risk management. Current assessment frameworks and intervention programmes are evaluated, with consideration of treatment efficacy.
The handbook provides professionals with an evidence-based approach to the management and rehabilitation of individuals who have sexually offended, while presenting ideas on the prevention of sexual abuse. Concepts and theory behind sexual offender rehabilitation are presented with a focus on how this information can be applied in the development of real-world policies that seek to reduce re-offending.
The Wiley Handbook of What Works with Sexual Offenders also includes discussions from renowned international researchers and clinicians on the empirical findings of treatment effectiveness.
