Learn to work effectively with sexual criminals! How to Work with Sex Offenders is the first complete manual available on the subject for professionals who deal with this very difficult population. This user-friendly, comprehensive resource presents new data that will give you techniques for effectively interviewing sex offenders and outlines innovative treatment options in an understandable way, but that is just part of what makes this book unique. How to Work with Sex Offenders walks you through the criminal justice, human services, and mental health systems as applied to sex offenders from start to finish -- you'll learn what happens to the offender from the point when he/she is apprehended, through prosecution, adjudication, and treatment. From the Preface, by Rudy Flora: "Sexual offending impacts both victim and offender. The clinical harm experienced by a victim is significant and recovery is long-termed. Offenders, too, are often trapped in the tragedy of their deviance. Sex offenders are extremely skillful at avoiding detection, and will use any 'system confusion'displayed by providers to their advantage. [With this book] the reader will be exposed, in a step-by-step format, to how the criminal justice, human service, and mental health systems function." How to Work With Sex Offenders: A Handbook for Criminal Justice, Human Service, and Mental Health Professionals examines: how the current system works, from start to finish the roles of child protective services workers, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, physicians/hospital staff, district attorneys, defense lawyers, judges, mental health professionals, foster families, probation officers, correctional officers, parole officers, and social services providers individual, family, and group therapy models basic universal concepts regarding identification of sex offenders profiles of exhibitionists, frotteurs, voyeurs, pedophiles, rapists, sexual sadists and paraphiliacs what to expect when called as an expert witness at a sex offender's trial sexual assault as a clinical disorder suggested treatment formats for sex offenders in an outpatient setting, inpatient psychiatric hospital, or correctional facility the costs of incarceration as well as inpatient and outpatient costs the difficulties of parole and probational supervision for sex offenders presentencing reports and interviewing strategies and much moreMany sex offenders were early victims themselves. Incarceration alone will not alleviate the problem; other methods to prevent repeat offences are needed. Those who encounter these offenders require certain skills in order to properly protect the public and the victim as well as helping the offenders themselves. How to Work with Sex Offenders is the resource you need to handle this extraordinarily difficult and vitally important task.
