Pathways, 4th Edition
A Guided Workbook for Youth Beginning Treatment
by Timothy J. Kahn, M.S.W.
The Pathways workbook has been a cornerstone in the treatment of sexually aggressive youth since the first edition was issued twenty years ago. As the field has evolved and advanced, so has Pathways. This new Fourth Edition reflects current research and clinical experience with adolescents by focusing on strength-based methods to help clients develop healthy and productive lifestyles consistent with the Good Lives Model of rehabilitation. Pathways continues to use a restorative justice theme emphasizing concern for restitution, development of victim empathy and personal responsibility. Focus is shifted from the offense cycle into understanding the antecedents to a client’s sexual acting out.
The Fourth Edition incorporates quizzes into the end of each chapter. Experience has shown that the quizzes are a rewarding and helpful way to ensure that clients are reading and comprehending the material in the chapters. The tests also provide the client with a tangible sense of accomplishment.
Pathways is written for both adolescent boys and girls, and is appropriate for both adjudicated and non-adjudicated clients with a wide variety of sexual behavior problems. (2011)
A note from the author:
“If you're thinking about using Pathways, I encourage you to also look at the Healthy Families book because it really helps get the family involved in the process of individual treatment.”

Is there a facilitator’s guide to the Pathways Workbook or book to make sure that the answers to some of the assignments are correct and are being done correctly?
Thank you for your inquiry. There is not a facilitator’s guide to Pathways. I’ve asked Tim Kahn about this from time to time, but he insists that it isn’t necessary. He does provide some instruction for clinicians in the preface, though probably not the guidance you’re looking for. You’ll find Tim’s email in the preface as well, so you might want to reach out to him directly. I hope this answers your question.
Is there an adult version of your workbooks?

Does this book come in Spanish?
I am afraid that Pathways does not come in Spanish. Many years ago we had translated the third edition into Spanish, but learned after the fact that it was a poor translation. We stopped selling it, but gave copies away when asked. Unfortunately, hurricane Irene flooded our warehouse, destroying all those copies.
We do have a Spanish-language edition of our workbook Becoming Who I Want to Be. See here:

Let us know if you have any questions. And thank you for your interest in Safer Society Press.
