With an emphasis throughout on practical guidance, leading practitioners address a number of important questions: Who are sexually abusive adolescents and what do they do? What are the current theories of adolescent sexual abusiveness? How can we address issues of risk estimation and management? What are the assumptions behind many aspects of assessment and treatment?

`There is much in this book that is of value' - Clinical Child Psychology and Psychiatry
`The book can be used both as an immediate and up-to-speed overview of adolescent sexual offending and also as a handbook for quick and easy reference, particularly in the area of treatment. This, for me, is the book's strength. Its versatility and easy-to-read style puts it in the same league as, for example, Bull and Carson's Handbook of Psychology in Legal Contexts. This text is a worthwhile read and I can thoroughly recommend it, particularly to colleagues working in the field' - Forensic Update
`This book constitutes a timely contribution to British literature on this topic area... The book should hold interest for social workers, youth justice staff, probation officers and others working with young sexual offenders' - British Journal of Social Work
`The editors have produced a key text that will stimulate further discussion and investigation in this important field of work' - Community Care
