About this item

Providing a valuable explanation of current theory and evidence as well as an emphasis on social work rather than psychological treatment, this book offers a practical and positive approach to working with people who have committed sexual offenses.  Chapters address a variety of critical issues, from the emotional impacts of facing the sex offender and the importance of values and ethics in practice to public and academic understandings of sex offenders and sex crimes and key points in contemporary practice, including assessment, intervention, and worker support. Written in an accessible style and featuring exercises integrated throughout the book,Social Work with Sex Offenders will help students, practitioners, policy makers, and academics in and beyond the discipline of social work to reflect on theory, best practices, and the development of emotional resilience.
