Applying the Good Lives and Self-Regulation Models to Sex Offender Treatment
A Practical Guide for Clinicians
by Pamela M. Yates, Ph.D., R.D.Psych., David Prescott, L.I.C.S.W. & Tony Ward, Ph.D., DipClinPsyc.
A comprehensive guide to integrating the Good Lives and Self-Regulation models into a sex offender treatment program. The authors present the two models as a combined program to achieve two goals with offenders: building a lifestyle incompatible with offending and effectively managing risk. This is a thorough, step-by-step guide that first lays the groundwork with the fundamentals, continues with sections on assessment and treatment, and wraps up with post-treatment maintenance and supervision.
A practical, common-sense guide written specifically for clinicians from the leading Good Lives experts, this is a book no one who treats or manages sex offenders should be without. (2010)
“Always ahead of the curve, Pamela Yates, David Prescott, and Tony Ward present us with a cogent roadmap for the future of sexual offender treatment. Clinicians will appreciate the practical guidelines and case examples while researchers will revel in the comprehensive empirical foundation. As a scientist-practitioner, it is wonderful to finally have everything I need available in one solid publication.”
