David L. Delmonico and Elizabeth J. Griffin
plus shipping and handling
Add to Cart
Twenty years ago, the issue of child pornography was limited to helping professionals who specialized in the area of sexual offenses. However, with the widespread use of the Internet and subsequent technologies, child pornography is more available and accessible than ever. As a result, more individuals are entering the mental health and legal system who have viewed child pornography.

The purpose of illegal Images, is to provide helping professionals (e.g., mental health professionals, child advocates, pastoral counselors, and community supervision officers with information regarding the key issues to be addressed when working with anyone viewing online child pornography.

Reading Illegal Images will answer critical questions about this difficult issue and give practical solutions for working with these individuals.

The recent printing of Illegal Images contained page title errors in Appendices D, E, and F. The text is completely accurate. The corrected appendices are available in two forms.

Click here to download a pdf of the appendices so that they can be folded in half and inserted into the book.
