Footprints - 2nd Edition
Steps to a Healthy Life
by Krishan G. Hansen & Timothy J. Kahn
Footprints: Steps to a Healthy Life is for developmentally disabled adults and adolescents with sexual behavior problems, clients with learning disabilities, attention deficits, and less than average cognitive abilities. When initially published in 2006, Footprints was the first workbook dedicated to the treatment of this challenging population.
The second edition reflects evolving theories of treatment and emerging practices.
New in the Second Edition
- Positive & Goal-oriented: For the second edition, Footprints has been revised to provide a more positive, goal-oriented approach in line with the Good Lives Model of treatment.
- Self Tests: Each of the 16 "step" chapters now ends with a self-test to help reinforce the concepts learned in that step.
- Flash Cards: A set of 48 pocket-sized, perforated flashcards are bound into the back of the book, which clients can personalize and carry with them for reference and reinforcement.

Developmentally disabled individuals experience sexual and physical abuse at rates 50 to 60 percent higher than that of other groups. They are more prone to demonstrate sexual behavior problems. Footprints is an effective tool for providing caring, effective treatment of this population. (2012)
