During this same time the numbers of children and teens identified with problematic sexual behaviors have also increased.

How can clinicians and other professionals motivate adult clients who have been mandated into treatment? Most workbooks explore the techniques for treatment without providing a framework for engaging clients in the face of the fact that most clients feel ambivalent about entering treatment.
