Assessing Risk in Sex Offenders A Practitioner's Guide Press Reviews

Encourages readers to really think about how this area of research and practice is developing, and on what we need to focus our attention. It achieves this very well indeed, and I warmly commend it as a highly valuable source. (The Howard Journal, December 2009) This book is good for learning how to assess risk with sex offenders, a population with a high recidivism rate. It is well written and covers the topic thoroughly. ... This book should be in the libraries of forensic psychologists involved in sex offender work. (Doody's, April 2009)
