This sensitively written, easy-to-use workbook is a vital component of the Connections psychoeducational program for the nonoffending parents of sexual abuse victims and partners of sex offenders. Taking clients through a step-by-step process toward family healing and possible reunification, this book covers such issues as denial among family members, signs and symptoms of sexual abuse, understanding sex offenders, child protection, developing family safety plans, and the clarification process between the offenders and victims.

Featuring many useful checklists, illustrative diagrams, and spaces to record thoughts and feelings as the client works through the process, the Connections Workbook coordinates with its companion book Treating Nonoffending Parents in Child Sexual Abuse Cases.
