Few approaches to sex offender treatment and management attempt to be truly transformative. Tom Keating has chosen to challenge his clients to learn how to manage their behaviors and transform the way they approach life. RESPECT is both a philosophy of living and a very specific set of exercises to help youth and young adults who have sexually abused to live abuse-free lives.
To make RESPECT work, the clinician must have integrated its principles as deeply as his/her clients. RESPECT begins with a “bow,” a simple gesture with profound meaning, as recognized in every martial arts tradition. RESPECT’s seven step process integrates the elements of relapse prevention, thinking errors work, multi-sensory and brain-based approaches to learning. Successfully incorporated into programs in the USA and internationally, the author sets forth the core principle of RESPECT: “I hope that this work will convey the essence of RESPECT to you, and I bow to you in mutual RESPECT for the invaluable work that you are doing.”
