Treating persons who sexually abuse is one of the most demanding jobs of a mental health practitioner. Because few professionals are trained to work with involuntary clients, they often experience levels of anger and stress that reduce their ability to effectively treat their sex offender clients.

If you are treating sex offenders, feeling isolated, and approaching burnout, reading The Difficult Connection is like finding a mentor, someone who both understands your issues and can point you in the right direction. (1998)

The Difficult Connection's "clarion call to therapists" includes chapters on:
Societal Responses to Sexual Offending
The Normality of Sexual Offenders
The Mechanization of Treatment
Who Owns Resistance?
A Restorative Approach
Compassionate Therapy
