Up until the turn of the century, adolescent males with sexual behavior problems were treated using an adult criminological model. Recently however, it has been proven that juvenile offenders benefit most from a holistic program designed specifically for this younger age group. Male juvenile sex offenders are a unique population in need of specialized treatment. Work with adolescent sexual offenders is complex and should address not only the criminal behavior, but developmental and behavioral issues as well. This therapist guide describes a three-phase treatment for use in residential settings with young men who have perpetrated sexual crimes. Based on the principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy, the developed program is designed to address social and cultural influences on the youth's behavior, family dynamics, and peer influences. Phase I of treatment focuses on social skill development and impulse control. The aim of Phase II is to help participating youth develop a healthy understanding of sexuality and sexual relationships. Youth are also taught anger management skills. In the final phase of treatment, the goal is to foster in youth cognitive and emotional understanding of the negative physical, emotional and social consequences of sexually abusive behavior. Phase III presents relapse prevention strategies as well. The concept of healthy masculinity is introduced at the start of the program and carried throughout. According to scientific research, the majority of juvenile sex offenders who have undergone the treatment in this guide do not go on to sexually reoffend or become adult sex offenders. Complete with step-by-step instructions for facilitating treatment, as well as sample dialogues, case studies, and homework assignments, this guide is an essential resource for everyone working with this unique group of clients.

Sex offending, and in particular child sex offending, is a complex area for policy makers, theorists and practitioners. A focus on punishment has reinforced sex offending as a problem that is essentially ‘other’ to society and discourages engagement with the real scale and scope of sexual offending in the UK. This book looks at the growth of work with sex offenders, questioning assumptions about the range and types of such offenders and what effective responses to these might be. Divided into four sections, this book sets out the growth of a broad legislative context and the emergence of child sexual offenders in criminal justice policy and practice. It goes on to consider a range of offences and victim typologies arguing that work with offenders and victims is complex and can provide a rich source of theoretical and practical knowledge that should be utilised more fully by both policy makers and practitioners. It includes work on female sex offenders, electronic monitoring and animal abuse as well as exploring interventions with sex offenders in three different contexts; prisons, communities and hostels. Bringing together academic, practice and policy experts, the book argues that a clear but complex theoretical and policy approach is required if the risk of re- offending and further victimisation is to be reduced. Ultimately, this book questions whether it makes sense to locate responsibility for responding to sexual offending solely within the criminal justice domain.

This briefs is designed for researchers, practitioners, and students concerned about violence prevention and who are interesting in bystander intervention as a promising prevention strategy. Connections between research and practice are the foundation of this briefs. The briefs addresses the following questions: What is the promise of a bystander approach to violence prevention? Where does it fit within the spectrum of sexual and relationship violence prevention? How do we expand theoretical models of helping behavior to the unique context of interpersonal violence? How can we bring in research from other areas of health behavior change and developmental research on violence to inform a broader bystander action model? It provides a new synthesis and model of bystander interaction. It outlines a strategic plan for new research and next steps in prevention practices.

Queer Sex Work

Sex work is a subject of significant contestation across academic disciplines, as well as within legal, medical, moral, feminist, political and socio-cultural discourses. A large body of research exists, but much of this focuses on the sale of sex by women to men and ignores other performances, practices, meanings and embodiments in the contemporary sex industry. A queer agenda is important in order to challenge hetero-centric gender norms and to develop new insights into how gender, sex, power, crime, work, migration, space/place, health and intimacy are understood in the context of commercial sexual encounters. Queer Sex Work explores what it might mean to ‘be’, ‘do’ and ‘think’ queer(ly) in the study and practice of commercial sex. It brings together a multiplicity of empirical case studies – including erotic dance venues, online sex working, pornography, grey sexual economies, and BSDM – and offers a variety of perspectives from academic scholars, policy practitioners, activists and sex workers themselves. In so doing, the book advances a queer politics of sex work that aims to disrupt heteronormative logics whilst also making space for different voices in academic and political debates about commercial sex. This unique and multidisciplinary volume will be indispensable for scholars and students of the global sex trade and of gender, sexuality, feminism and queer theory more broadly, as well as policymakers, activists and practitioners interested in the politics and practice of sex work in local, national and international contexts.
