Current Applications: Strategies for Working with Sexually Aggressive Youth and Youth with Sexual Behavior Problems

$69.00

David S. Prescott, LCSW and Robert E. Longo

In this new volume, Prescott and Longo take the theory and science addressed in Current Perspectives and translates it into useful information for clinical practice. With the belief that a good book should be like attending a great three-day conference, the editors have assembled diverse perspectives from nationally recognized leaders as well as rising stars in the field. Current Applications addresses practical topics related to everyday clinical practice with young people who have sexual behavior problems, from making meaningful connections in treatment to building on the strengths of young people. The book goes beyond traditional sex abuse specific treatment approaches into new areas that will engage all aspects of the adolescent’s development and his or her environment. Topics include working with developmentally delayed youth, building on client strengths, brain-based interventions, art therapy, considerations in using the polygraph, public policy, working through client resistance, and many others. Contributors to this excellent one-volume compendium include, but not limited to: Jack Apsche, Jill Levenson, Phil Rich, Steven P. Sawyer, Joann Schladale, and Ken Singer.

Editorial Reviews

"Current Applications is a daring and brave text. Breaking from much of the stodgy and deeply entrenched psychological theories of the past, this book delivers a humanistic approach to sexual abuse treatment."
