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.”

— Robin J. Wilson, Ph.D., ABPP, Clinical Director, Florida Civil Commitment Center and Professor, Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, Toronto

    Applying the Good Lives and Self-Regulation Models to Sex Offender Treatment
    The day I picked up this book, my firmly held belief was, and had long been, that it was impossible for me to change, to stop my deviant interests and activities. I truly believed change for one such as me was just not possible. This manual for life lays out all the truly key elements in an easy to grasp manner. It doesn't just give you the answer, but the authors skillfully guide the sincere reader along a path that is rife with all the hidden jewels necessary for life changing results. I spent approximately 6 months laboring over chapter 2, the common life goals. I learned more about myself in those 6 months than I ever dreamed possible, and for the first time in my long, miserable life, began to finding answers to those always-dreaded questions; "why do you do what you do? Why rape?" Before this book, I simply said "becuase I like it," or that I was simply "born this way and being true to my nature." That was the oft-told lie I used becuase I had no other answer. This godsend of a book led me down the path, down many side trails, to my first real understanding of the dysfunctional thinking that was destroying my life and the lives of those around me. Bravo to the authors, and bravo to the many therapists who utilize this book in the treatment of sex offenders and who implement this mode of treatment properly and in an environment of trust and sincerety. Bravo!
