Praise for previous editions of Juvenile Sexual Offending

"A stimulating presentation of clinical thinking that demonstrates why the authors are leaders in the juvenile sex offending field."

Jim Breiling, National Institute of Mental Health

"Juvenile Sexual Offending provides a comprehensive, in-depth look at the juvenile sexual abuser and assessment and treatment issues. The increase in sexual abuse by adolescents makes this book a must for professionals whose work brings them into contact with juvenile sexual abusers."

Robert E. Longo, Serendipity Healing Arts

"This book should be required reading for everyone providing services to adolescents who have committed sexual offenses and to their families. It remains the seminal text from which a framework for assessment, treatment, and aftercare are gleaned."

Joann Schladale, Resources for Resolving Violence

This classic text sets the foundation for working with juveniles who have sexually offended

The new edition of Juvenile Sexual Offending provides a research-based, goal-oriented approach to the assessment, treatment, supervision, and care of this difficult population.

Written by leading specialists in the field, the Third Edition represents the tremendous strides in research on brain growth and development. A thorough overview of the process of risk evaluation is included, as well as detailed and practical guidelines on gauging the possibility of repeated offense. Also included:

  • New chapters on legislative and policy developments; risk assessment; adult responsibilities; and outcomes pairing risk management with health promotion

  • Greatly expanded coverage of treatment, including new chapters on abuse-specific and offense-specific treatment interventions, and the effects of trauma

  • Practitioner-friendly guidance to help mental health professionals with decision making; program development; case management skills; and working within multidisciplinary teams

Juvenile Sexual Offending, Third Edition helps mental health professionals, child welfare, law enforcement, and juvenile justice professionals move toward successful assessment and treatment of juveniles who sexually abuse, reducing the risk of sexual abuse in future generations.
