How to Work with Sex Offenders: A Handbook for Criminal Justice, Human Service, and Mental Health Professionals
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."
