A Guided Workbook for Youth Beginning Treatment
By Timothy J. Kahn
For over three decades, the Pathways workbook has been a favorite resource for clinicians working with teens with sexual behavior problems.
The new fifth edition has been revised from cover to cover to make the workbook even more relevant for youths with problematic sexual behaviors, including those who have engaged in non-consensual sexual contact with peers as well as youths who have been viewing child sexual abuse materials (CSAM). Pathways, Fifth Edition, provides updated technology references while maintaining the familiar chapter organization. There is less focus on arousal conditioning methods and increased focus on building resilience and positive life experiences.
New and updated assignments focus on healthy sexuality, establishing healthy boundaries, yes-means-yes consent, and communication in sexual relationships. Numerous assignments have been revised to address the treatment needs of youths who have been viewing CSAM.
Pathways is intended to be used in treatment with adolescents ages 14 to 19.
