    The assessment and treatment of sexual deviance can be very difficult tasks, and it can be hard to find mentors to provide initial skills training and help in navigating the many complexities of a particular case. This book presents a series of case studies from international experts in the field that depict the evidence-based assessment and treatment of a variety of paraphilias. Intended as learning tools readers can use as models and from which they can gain insight, these case studies are offered as exemplars of clinical problem solving. The authors of each chapter provide research evidence that justifies treatment decisions, explain their assessment strategies and case formulations, and provide information about how to navigate common problems a clinician will encounter, such as denial, poor motivation, and co-morbid problems. A variety of assessment instruments and treatment strategies are also illustrated. Both new and experienced clinicians will find this book to be an invaluable resource in their own work.

    "Overall, Case Studies in Sexual Deviance: Toward Evidence Based Practice does an admirable job in providing extensive literature reviews of treatment effectiveness studies and then providing a step by step example of how that treatment could be implemented in a clinical practice. It is an excellent resource for clinicians and clinical trainees looking to increase competency in the assessment and treatment of problematic sexual behavior." -Eric Sprankle, PsycCRITIQUES
