Would you like to publish with NEARI Press?
If you have a book that you would like to publish with NEARI Press, we would be interested in hearing your ideas! Because we only publish a few books each year, we have to be selective about the books we choose. If your book is about the following topics, please consider sending us a proposal. To facilitate a quick response from us, we ask you take a look at NEARI’s mission and values to ensure that your work is compatible with the work that we do here.
Key focus areas for NEARI Press:
- Workbooks targeting adult sex offenders, children and adolescents who have sexually abused, and children and adolescents with sexual behavior problems or who may be at risk to abuse.
- Guidebooks or evidence-informed curriculum for professionals working with someone who has been victimized by sexual abuse or who has perpetrated sexual harm.
- Material for family members, parents, and caretakers of children or teens about safety or healthy sexual development.

We ask that you include the following materials in your proposal:
