Based on key research into assessment, treatment and recidivism, this book offers practical guidance on improving intervention techniques with sex offenders. The contributors explore the monitoring and surveillance strategies and cognitive-behavioural techniques currently used both in prison and in the community, and give clear directions for future practice. Providing a detailed overview of the typologies and characteristics of offenders, they suggest strategies for managing different kinds of offender, including children and young people who are sexually aggressive.

The Sex Offenders Act and the Crime and Disorder Act emphasise the need for effective community management of the predatory paedophile. Reviewing the recent growth in multi-agency approaches to this challenge, the book discusses how police, prisons and social work departments can share information and collaborate effectively, and will be essential reading for probation officers, prison staff, social workers and anyone involved in the assessment and management of sex offenders.

Managing Sex Offender Risk looks at the current statistical rise in known cases of sexual offences towards women and children. Paedophilia has become a growing problem, and this growing issue is not always recognised. Managing Sex Offender Risk highlights the problems of identifying and punishing sex offenders. This book assesses various methodologies and approaches to dealing with sex offenders and assuring that they do not relapse after intervention. Managing Sex Offender Risk concludes by looking at community based action plans for dealing with the protection from and prevention of sexual crimes on minors, and gives the statistics behind sexual crimes related to minors. -- childRIGHT
