"Within this book, Beech and his colleagues have set out to provide a comprehensive body of knowledge for professionals with a remit for assessing and treating sex offenders.9 This aim has been meticulously developed and it offers a scholarly, though accessible resource of great value within this field.9 For its breadth and thoroughness in achieving this objective, I commend it highly." (ATSA Forum, Spring 2011)
"This is an exceptionally valuable compendium combining current knowledge and recent advances in the field of sex offender theory, research and practice." (Association for the treatment of sexual abusers, 2011)
"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)
