A significant percentage of sexual abuse in the United States is committed by juveniles, and mental health professionals increasingly receive requests to evaluate these juveniles. With an emphasis on practicality and utility, Juvenile Sex Offenders fills a gap in the current literature by providing a thoughtful, thorough approach to evaluating and treating youth who have committed sexual offenses or have engaged in sexually abusive behavior. Serving as a functional guide, this text expertly prepares clinicians for the challenging task of evaluating juveniles, picking up where traditional clinical training often falls short and providing state-of-the-art assessment techniques as well as an overview of treatment modalities. Chapters highlight the many ways in which juveniles charged with sexual offenses differ from adults, the common dilemmas facing evaluators, and the changing perceptions and legal trends with respect to youth crime. Chapters also cover sexual development and behaviors among children and adolescents, risk factors and risk assessment, case examples for working with attorneys, and interventions and pharmacological approaches. Clinical practitioners with limited forensic training will benefit from the guidance on formal forensic evaluation and the review of literature on assessment approaches specific to youth, while forensic experts will gain developmental perspective in evaluating and treating young sexual offenders. Set in a hopeful and optimistic framework, Juvenile Sex Offenders is a practical, empirically based guide on the best practices in evaluating and treating this poorly understood and underserved population.

For over a century, developmental disabilities have been associated with crime in prejudicial and pejorative contexts. Offenders with Developmental Disabilities provides a balanced, comprehensive review of the prevalence, nature and development of offending by those with intellectual disabilities. Not only does this volume include coverage of evidence-based assessment and treatment ideas, strategies and plans, but also places the field in a historical, legal and ethical context. William Lindsay, John Taylor and Peter Sturmey have brought together a wealth of contributors from differing backgrounds to share new material and knowledge of assessments, treatment, and service issues in a single volume. Divided into five parts, Part I opens with theoretical issues; Part II deals with legal and services contexts including ethical concerns; Part III considers risk assessment, general assessment and approaches to evaluation; Part IV addresses specific issues of sexual offending, anger and aggression, fire raising, dual diagnosis, female offenders and personality disorder; Part V concludes with service development, professional and research issues. Forensic practitioners and students from psychology and psychiatry, lawyers and advocates, nurses and social workers will all find this comprehensive and practical book an inspiration in taking this field forward.

While most sexual offender treatment programs take an aggressive, confrontational approach that targets the offenders' denial, research has indicated that this common approach does not appreciably alter actual risk factors related to reoffense rate. Furthermore, this approach can alienate and demoralize offenders. Over the past 40 years, William L. Marshall and colleagues have developed and refined a motivational, strength-based approach emphasizing warmth, empathy, and support for the offenders. Backed by research, this positive approach does not ignore risk factors but presents them to clients as targets for the development of strengths rather than as deficits to be overcome. Such programs in both prison and community settings achieve a broad range of treatment targets and appear to reduce recidivism for both sexual and nonsexual crimes. This landmark volume challenges how sexual offender treatment is typically conducted. It is thought-provoking reading for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and parole and probation officers working with sexual offenders In this wonderful book, Marshall and colleagues describe the surrounding theory and treatment strategies of their positive approach to working with adult sex offenders. Exceptionally well written and clearly structured, in many respects the book represents the fruits of a lifetime of profound reflection and innovation by one of the field's outstanding talents and pioneers. It is a brilliant achievement and provides a coherent and accurate integration of the tenets of positive psychology and strength-based perspectives with contemporary assessment and treatment techniques.---Tony Ward, PhD, Head of School of Psychology, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand This volume is a welcome addition to the small, but growing, literature on strength-based work with offenders. It is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the field of rehabilitation, whether they be practitioners, academics, or students.---Anthony Beech, PhD, Professor of Forensic Psychology, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom
