A comprehensive look at the many types of male and female sex offenders who victimize children, adolescents, and adults

Comprehensive Mental Health Practice with Sex Offenders and Their Families presents practitioners, professionals, and policymakers with effective, user-friendly practice methods for working with all types of sex offenders. Each chapter provides an overview of a specific category of sex offender and presents case examples and sample treatment plans with short- and long-term goals and objectives. This unique book also includes the latest assessment and intervention methods, family and relapse prevention efforts, and cultural issues that affect service delivery.

Comprehensive Mental Health Practice with Sex Offenders and Their Families examines the etiology, prevalence, and behavioral consequences of eight different sex offender typologies to provide you with a much broader focus than you'll find in other sex offender books currently on the market. The book explores gender issues, demographics, offense characteristics, family characteristics, and assessment issues in dealing with both male and female sex offenders who use psychological and physical means to victimize children, adolescents, and adults. The end result is effective as a reference for health and mental health practitioners, as a resource for program implementation and outcome evaluation for policymakers and researchers, and as a classroom aid for the next generation of social workers and health and mental health providers.

adolescent sex offenders criminal sexual acts committed by juveniles
