Just a sampling of the nearly 20 chapters cover topics such as: a new framework for assessing a child’s risk to repeat concerning sexual behaviors (Tracey Curwen); a step-by-step approach to responding to concerning sexual behaviors in children and youth with learning disabilities (Joanne Butterworth and Tim Plan); typologies of adolescents who sexually harm and the associated risk factors, modus operandi and criminal activities (Nicole Hickey); and a CBT-based treatment approach to reducing shame and increasing responsibility with adolescents who have sexually offended (James Worling, Nina Josefowitz and Melissa Malter).
