This is a comprehensive resource for practitioners working with sexual offenders. It discusses assessments and interventions, as well as providing a comprehensive literature review. There are around 10,000 convictions or cautions for sexual offences in the UK each year; early evidence suggests that treatment programmes can halve re-conviction rates. This book is edited by a University of Birmingham team who are world leaders in researching this area; the subject is of interest worldwide, with strong markets in Canada and New Zealand. It includes material on managing offenders with developmental disabilities and those with Dangerous and Severe Personality Disorder.
