Book Description
Current Perspectives represents the best thinking and practice from leaders and front-line workers who assess and treat sexually aggressive and abusive adolescents and young people with sexual behavior problems. With chapters ranging from considerations of diversity to ethics and developing integrity, from developmental concerns in pre-pubertal clients to girls with sexually abusive behaviors, from research on resilience to an examination of attachment styles, from drama therapy to neurological impacts, Current Perspectives is the best one-volume compendium available. Every juvenile treatment program should make this rich resource available for its administrators, clinicians, protective service workers, and professionals working in the juvenile justice system.
