Since the first edition was published in 1997 our understanding of this group has been changing rapidly to embrace our practice wisdom and the latet findings. A significant amount of new material has evolved. This book provides a detailed yet accessible and evidence-based framework for both initial and core assessments of children and juveniles who sexually abuse. In this major new edition Calder has: extended many of the original sections (especially around social skills and competence); added to the batteries of references and questionnaires; and added new sections on theory, actuarial risk assessment guidance, working with client strengths, engagement strategies, working with denial, attachment and intimacy, interpersonal relationships, staff care issues, protective mechanisms and developmental approaches, gender, disability and cultural issues.
