Overview

Examine the major advances in sexual offender treatment over the last decade and promising new concepts in treatment, supervision, and research

Sex Offender Treatment: Accomplishments, Challenges, and Future Directions points the way toward humane, dignified, effective treatment regimes for sexual offenders. In addition to providing an essential overview of the current state of sex offender treatment, this book examines vital areas of service provision and research and points to future directions for the field.

On the medical/psychological front, this volume explores the importance of recognizing comorbid psychiatric factors in treatment and of exploring central nervous system function's role as a cause of sexually inappropriate behavior. In the legislative/justice arena it illustrates a "Circles of Support" proposal that mobilizes community resources to aid the adjustment of released offenders rather than branding them as dangerous to the community. And in the area of service provision, this book presents a treatment approach for residential programs that is inspired by research on childhood behavioral problems and special education.

This book will increase your effectiveness with:

  • a model of multisystemic treatment for juvenile sex offenders
  • a restorative justice approach for reintegrating adult offenders into the community
  • a study of the physical/mental correlates of organic brain dysfunction
  • a case report on the use of a pharmaceutical treatment (leuprolide acetate) for pedophiles
