Editorial Reviews

"The clinicians’ guide for the LATTICES program is a welcome and long-overdue resource for the demanding work of both clinicians new to the field and seasoned clinicians. Not only is it easy to read, but it provides a consistent and structured approach to working with challenging clients who are high-risk and high-needs."

— Sandy Jung, Ph.D., R.Psych., Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, MacEwan University

"As someone who has worked in the area of treatment with high risk sexual offenders, I have always lamented that the majority of the books and manuals available have been focused on treating moderate, or even low-risk offenders. There are many aspects of working with high risk men that are unique and having a solid, well-written resource can be invaluable. LATTICES is such a resource. It clearly was developed by clinicians who know their client population and offers excellent insight and advice regarding working with this difficult population."

–Jan Looman, Ph.D., C. Psych, Forensic Behaviour Services
