Managing Men Who Sexually Abuse


Briggs and Kennington’s new book constitutes a comprehensive and accessible guide to managing men who sexually offend and draws on recent developments in cognitive-behavioural therapy.

The authors emphasize the need to incorporate practice-based research and clinical experience in intervention strategies. They demonstrate the importance of customizing interventions and describe how to tailor treatment according to the individual client’s needs. This volume also examines the theoretical issues behind cognitive-behavioural interventions when dealing with this group.

From their own extensive knowledge of contemporary practice in the United States and Great Britain, David Briggs and Roger Kennington offer insights and guidance for improving objectives and techniques in intervention.

The companion volume to Assessing Men Who Sexually Abuse, Managing Men Who Sexually Abuse is a practical manual which will be an invaluable resource for anyone working in the assessment and management of sexual offenders.
