Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Handbook of Child and Adolescent Sexuality and Toolkit for Working with Juvenile Sex Offenders represent highly useful resources for the myriad of youth sexual behaviors and tendencies. Whereas the former provides solid data on the range of sexual tendencies and thus allows for the understanding of normative and non-normative juvenile sexuality, the latter is steeped in the assessment and intervention of those sexual tendencies and behaviors deemed problematic. Although both texts are geared towards the criminal side of youth sexuality, they are not monolithically so, with each offering ample information on working with children and adolescent sexual themes, regardless of their forensic status. Whether used together or individually, Handbook of Child and Adolescent Sexuality and Toolkit for Working with Juvenile Sex Offenders substantially aid the therapist in the trenches of clinical work with adolescents and children." -Anthony F. Tasso, New Jersey Psychologist, 65, 1, 47-48
