A Practical Guide to Working with Sex Offenders (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Many safeguarding practitioners do not specialise in work with sex offenders, but do find themselves working with them and need professional understanding and expertise to do so. This book provides professionals with a clear understanding of current theory and good practice.

Designed as a complement to specialist assessment processes, it covers relevant theory, ranging from current research on to neurobiology and sexual deviance, through to types of offending and offender profiles. It also lays out key areas of good practice, from carrying out assessments, managing risk and making complex decisions through to current legislation and how best to safeguard families.

Taking you from the fundamental principles right through to responding to complex cases, this book is essential reading for all safeguarding professionals.
