The treatment, assessment, intervention and evaluation of sexual deviants are topics that have experienced a recent resurgence in the mental health fields, as the number of reported sex abuse cases continues to rise. Practitioners are increasingly faced with both criminal and non-criminal sex offenders with a variety of backgrounds, abuses, and treatment history. Specialists and non-specialists alike are often unprepared and ill-equipped for the myriad of disorders prevalent in today's society. Practical Clinical Guidebook on Sexual Offenders provides the therapist with a guide to the assessment, treatment, and evaluation of a number of different disorders, including fetishisms, transvestic fetishisms, exhibitionism, frottage, pedophilia, sexual sadism, sexual masochism, telephone scatologia, voyeurism, rape, child molestation, and incest. Through extensive consideration of current research, theory and practice, the authors provide the clinician with the means to have a continued positive impact on the sex offender, from assessment to post-treatment evaluation and follow-up.
