Sexual Offender Treatment: Biopsychosocial PerspectivesColeman, E.; Miner, M. (Editors.) Haworth Press Inc., Binghamton, NY. 2000. 126 pp. $29.95. Paperback.
As public outcry and government laws lead to longer prison sentences for sexual offenders, researchers worldwide are gaining a better understanding of what causes sexual offenses and developing better treatment techniques for offenders. Selected papers from the 5th International Conference on the Treatment of Sexual Offenders present findings from research studies indicating that biology, psychology, and life-stressors all influence the sex offender's development, and treatment programs must address these issues. Chapters cover:
- Standards of care for the treatment of adult sex offenders
- The psychoneuroendocrinology of sexual aggression
- Brain abnormalities in incarcerated sexual offenders
- Treatment through group family intervention
- Treatment for pedophiles who are mentally retarded or have mental illness
This volume was also published as Journal of Psychology and Human Sexuality, Volume 11, Number 3, 2000.
