November/December 2001Vol. 2, No. 6Treating Youth Who Sexually Abuse: An Integrated Multi-Component Approach

Lundrigan, P. S. Haworth Press, Inc., Binghamtom, NY. 2001. 328 pp. $24.95. Paperback.

Treatment of juvenile sex abusers has seen dramatic growth in the past 25 years, expanding from fewer than five specialized treatment programs in 1978 to over 1,000 identified programs in the year 2000. Presenting a comprehensive treatment program for adolescent sex offenders, the author covers every phase of treatment from assessment to relapse prevention. The book is divided into five parts:

  • An introduction to the treatment of sexually abusive youth
  • Treatment programs
  • The basic components of treatment
  • The issue of pretreatment and aftercare
  • Staff training and development.

In addition, appendices include sources of additional information, sample day and after-school programs, sex offense-specific group materials, family treatment materials, and aftercare plans.
