Remaking Relapse Prevention with Sex Offenders
A Sourcebook


© 2000 | 576 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

"This book is a rich source of information on the application of relapse prevention with sex offenders. It presents readers promising directions for change and areas that need revision based on new research findings and the integration of emerging theoretical models that show considerable promise in this field. . . . The material in this book should help us construct a better, safer vehicle for the treatment of sex offenders in the new millennium."

–from the Foreword by G. Alan Marlatt, University of Washington

It is estimated that relapse prevention methods are employed in more than 90% of all North American sex offender treatment programs (of which there are more than 2,000). Comparable statistics are true in most industrialized countries around the world. Over the last decade a great deal has been learned about the treatment of sexual offenders, and particularly about relapse prevention. This sourcebook provides clinicians with the most current, practical information about working with sex offenders to prevent relapse. It reflects the advances and insights of the past decade since the publication of Relapse Prevention with Sex Offenders, focusing on the major reconceptualizations, revisions, and innovations that will chart treatment programs for the first decade of the new millennium.
