This book is a concise and useful guide for practitioners or those interested in working with sexual offenders. It is also ideally placed to help inform counsellors and therapists who are beginning to work with sex offenders. The book provides not only an overview of the theories associated with sex offender interventions and assessment, but also an update as to the recent developments in the UK. This is essential knowledge for anyone working in this complex area. The book provides a realistic overview of the nuances of the varied and often uncertain field of sex offending, and will help practitioners and students alike in being aware of current best practice. I highly recommend this book for people working with, or training to work with, sexual offenders.
