Sexual Deviance Second Edition Theory, Assessment, and Treatment

by Edited by D. Richard Laws and William T. O'Donohue

Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, this important work provides authoritative scientific and applied perspectives on the full range of paraphilias and other sexual behavior problems.

Full Description:   

Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, this important work provides authoritative scientific and applied perspectives on the full range of paraphilias and other sexual behavior problems. For each major clinical syndrome, a chapter on psychopathology and theory is followed by a chapter on assessment and treatment. Challenges in working with sex offenders are considered in depth. Thoroughly rewritten to reflect a decade of advances in the field, the second edition features many new chapters and new authors. New topics include an integrated etiological model, sexual deviance across the lifespan, Internet offenders, multiple paraphilias, neurobiological processes, the clinician as expert witness, and public health approaches.

"No other text captures so well the current state of scientific knowledge on the paraphilias, or points so clearly to the gaps in that knowledge. This book should be required reading for anyone treating patients with sexual deviations, evaluating sex offenders, or formulating public policy about sex offenses.
-Park Dietz, MD, MPH, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA School of Medicine
"Written by a veritable 'who's who' of international experts, this practical and theoretical resource is a 'must read' for anyone interested in human sexual deviancy. Psychopathologists and legal professionals alike will appreciate chapters devoted to understanding, assessing, and treating individuals with paraphilias, including Internet sex offenders. The many citations will benefit scholars, students, and those needing to prepare for courtroom testimony....I wish a book like this had been available 30 years ago when I began my career!"
-Jim Peters, criminal prosecutor, Eagle, Idaho
"The book is comprehensive, with an appreciation of the influence of research, theory, practice, culture, and politics. Positive and negative treatment outcomes, as well as areas in which adequate knowledge is currently lacking, are appropriately cited. Laws and O'Donohue recognize the importance of evidence-based understandings, as opposed to uninformed opinions, bias, or fads. This is a worthwhile text for clinicians, researchers, and students interested in learning more about sexual deviance, its possible causes, and potential treatments."
-Fred S. Berlin, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and Founder, Johns Hopkins Sexual Disorders Clinic, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
