Review quote

"The text has a number of strengths which distinguishes it from the rapidly growing corpus in this field. The most notable of these is the emphasis on applying the general techniques and concepts of assessment and treatment to specific sex offender populations. This includes groups that are often neglected such as female and juvenile sex offenders, as well as sex offenders with Learning difficulties and/or mental health problems. A further strength is the discussion of the utility and evidenced efficacy on comparatively new measures used in England and Wales, such as the penile plethysmograph and polygraph. Such discussions are essential given current trends in penal policy and practice with sex offenders. For those practitioners, academics and students who are interested in the assessment and treatment of sex offenders this Handbook is a significant addition to the literature and should be placed within easy reach on the bookshelf." (The Howard Journal, July 2010)
