Stages of Accomplishment is a set of four interrelated workbooks by Phil Rich that assist in the treatment of sexually abusive or sexually troubled adolescents. Building from simpler ideas to more complex and richer concepts, the workbooks take young people through a series of guided exercises that touch on many of the most significant elements of treatment.
The second edition of Stages retains the same character as the first, but with a change in language to reflect contemporary thoughts and ideas, a greater focus on adverse childhood experiences and a trauma-informed approach, and a greater focus on rehabilitation, strengths, and planning for success, with new material and chapters.

About the Author
Phil Rich has worked extensively with children, adolescents, and families for more than 40 years, and sees sexually troubled youths in just the same way as all the other children and adolescents with whom he has worked-as valuable, important, and capable young people on a path that can lead to success and satisfaction, even though there are pitfalls along the way. It is the support, encouragement, guidance, and belief in their capacities, and in them, that often makes the difference. Phil presents, trains, and consults nationally and internationally, and is the author of several books that address the assessment and treatment of young people who have engaged in sexually abusive behavior.
