Gendered Treatment Assessment
A Protocol for Women Who Have Sexually Offended
By Dawn Pflugradt, Bradley Allen, Megan Greene, Maricela Gamboa & Sarah Hoerl
This treatment assessment protocol has been written for guiding treatment planning for women who have committed sexually motivated offenses.
The organization of this book and the included Gendered Treatment Assessment Form are intended to be compatible with those assessment approaches or methodologies derived from a strengths-based treatment paradigm. The authors have set out to provide an assessment approach that is applicable across settings while at the same time is practical and recognizes every client is unique.
With a lay-flat, spiral binding, and a form that may be photocopied for use with multiple clients, this is a manual you can return to time after time as needed.
