Rene McCreary, MS, LPC
This guide, intended for therapists who work with youth who exhibit Sexually Problematic Behaviors (SPBs) and their families, is based on cutting-edge research regarding the most effective therapeutic interventions for treating youth with SPBs. Ideal for both new therapists establishing practice, as well as seasoned counselors engaging a new population, the guide is designed for therapists to feel more equipped to support families with youth who are struggling with SPBs, and includes practical activities for reducing SPBs, strengthening warm family interactions, and improving parents’ supervision and communication practices.
Assessment and safety planning, boundaries, feelings identification, distress tolerance, impulse control, cognitive distortions, family team building, sexuality, and extra family enrichment ideas are addressed. All activities in the book aim to support the family in building a common language to promote conversations that are safe, supportive, relationship-building, and “boundaryful.”
