This structured yet flexible manual presents an innovative group treatment approach that targets deficits in self-regulation-a central problem for sex offenders. Safe Offender Strategies SOS comprises 10 evidence-based modules that teach participants the skills to desist from problem behaviors, manage their emotions and impulses, and break unhealthy relationship patterns. Motivational enhancement and validation techniques are woven throughout this collaborative treatment. SOS can be used with a range of clients-including high-risk offenders and those with mental illness or intellectual disabilities-in institutional or outpatient settings. Fourteen reproducible forms and worksheets can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

Reviews:

"Stinson and Becker have opened a new and optimistic chapter in the so-far frustrating search for solutions to sexual violence. Offering respectful criticisms of prior therapeutic approaches, they provide an alternative that is standardized, can be systematically evaluated, and is supported by preliminary empirical studies. Ultimately, desistance from sexual crime depends on each offender's willingness to change; fortunately, the approach in this book is adherent to well-known principles of prosocial behavior change. Beautifully written, this comprehensive, practical treatment guide promises to be used and tested for years to come."--Joel A. Dvoskin, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, University of Arizona College of Medicine
