Sexual Abuse and the Sexual Offender examines the myths perpetuated by the media and widely held by the public, by providing actual data, with case examples, to demonstrate how sexual offending occurs, who commits these acts, what might cause such crimes, how sexual offenders are assessed, supervised and treated, and how to prevent such offending from occurring to the reader or to members of her or his own family. This book is not a textbook on how to assess or treat sexual offenders for a clinical audience. Rather, it aims to educate the general public about how experts in this field diagnose, analyze, assess and treat such offenders and what steps they may take to prevent such abuse in the future. It describes, with actual case examples, how we recognize a variety of offenders, how to separate them and assess their risk, and how to avoid becoming prey to them.
