Overview

The assessment, treatment, and management of sexual offenders with intellectual disabilities are areas of growing concern within the field of clinical forensic psychology.

Assessment and Treatment of Sexual Offenders with Intellectual Disabilities: A Handbook presents a comprehensive collection of the most up-to-date information and practical approaches to effective assessment and treatment. Contributors are among the leading researchers and practitioners in the field of contemporary forensic psychology, and include such experts as Tony Ward and Glynis Murphy.

The contributors’ latest research findings on the characteristics and prevalence of sexual offenders with intellectual disabilities are summarized and key topics are covered, including theories of sexual offending, developmental pathways, risk assessment, personality disorders and psychopathy, community- and prison-based treatment programmes, and legal and mental health services. The existing literature on sexual offenders with intellectual disabilities is also reviewed, as are the latest legislative developments and treatment approaches.

This is an invaluable resource for students, practitioners, and researchers who require an overview of current assessment and management techniques surrounding diminished capacity sex offenders.
