Description

Juvenile sex offender therapy has changed markedly since it emerged in the 1980s. Toolkit for Working with Juvenile Sex Offenders provides therapists with a summary of evidence-based practice with this population, including working with comorbid conditions and developmental disabilities. It provides tools for use in assessment, case formulation, and treatment, and includes forms, checklists, and exercises.

The intended audience is practitioners engaged in the assessment and treatment of juveniles whose sexual interests and/or behaviors are statistically non-normative and/or problematic. Readers will find a chapter on academic assessment and intervention, a domain frequently not covered by texts in this field.

  • Provides tools for assessment, case formulation, and treatment
  • Covers treatment in comorbid conditions or developmental disabilities
  • Contains forms, checklists, and client exercises for use in practice

Reviews

"...steeped in the assessment and intervention of those sexual tendencies and behaviors deemed problematic...substantially aid the therapist in the trenches of clinical work with adolescents and children."--New Jersey Psychologist

"...steeped in the assessment and intervention of those sexual tendencies and behaviors deemed problematic...substantially aid the therapist in the trenches of clinical work with adolescents and children."- New Jersey Psychologist

"Handbook of Child and Adolescent Sexuality and Toolkit for Working with Juvenile Sex Offenders represent highly useful resources for the myriad of youth sexual behaviors and tendencies. Whereas the former provides solid data on the range of sexual tendencies and thus allows for the understanding of normative and non-normative juvenile sexuality, the latter is steeped in the assessment and intervention of those sexual tendencies and behaviors deemed problematic. Although both texts are geared towards the criminal side of youth sexuality, they are not monolithically so, with each offering ample information on working with children and adolescent sexual themes, regardless of their forensic status. Whether used together or individually, Handbook of Child and Adolescent Sexuality and Toolkit for Working with Juvenile Sex Offenders substantially aid the therapist in the trenches of clinical work with adolescents and children." –Anthony F. Tasso, New Jersey Psychologist, 65, 1, 47-48
