Safer Society Press joined with editors Steven Mussack and Mark Carich to engage a team of top experts in the field of sexual offender assessment and treatment to create this handbook. The volume provides clinicians with the most current empirically and clinically supported methods for assessing the treatment needs of sexual offenders and providing them with effective treatment. The chapter authors we invited to write about their areas of specialization are respected authorities in the field, and most are also clinicians. Each chapter provides readers with effective tools they can directly apply to their clinical work. With 16 information-filled chapters, and two practical appendices, the handbook is a must-have reference for any professional working with adult sex offenders. (2014)
