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. Prescott and Wilson deal directly with motivation, setting the stage for the preparatory stages of change. Once a client moves into treatment, this workbook provides the concrete steps for a client to examine and address their barriers to effective treatment and ultimately, positive change. Learn More

Building Motivation for Change in Sexual Offenders
Edited by David S. Prescott

No credible evidence exists to prove that punishing people reduces their willingness to cause harm again. In fact, research indicates that a harsh, confrontational approach does not work over the long term. So how do you motivate your tough clients? How do you create a client/therapist environment that promotes your client's willingness to change?

David S. Prescott has assembled this leading-edge, professional resource to begin answering these questions. The book includes both theoretical and concrete approaches that focus on problems many, if not most, professionals have experienced. These include: helping clients to envision a more fulfilling life; working effectively with clients in denial; understanding the steps by which clients become ready to change; and effective practices for those who supervise clinicians working with sexual abusers.

Building Motivation for Change in Sexual Offenders opens the door on new approaches for professionals working with people who have sexually abused. Learn More

Add to Cart
Developmentally disabled individuals experience sexual and physical abuse at rates 50 to 60 percent higher than that of other groups. They are also much more prone to demonstrate "sexual behavior problems" due to cognitive delays, misinformation by caregivers and professionals, experiences of abuse, counterfeit deviance, lack of exposure to appropriate partners, and general desexualization by society. Until now, treatment providers had few legitimate tools for working with this population.

Footprints: Steps to a Healthy Life is for developmentally disabled adults and adolescents with sexual behavior problems, clients with learning disabilities, attention deficits, and less than average cognitive abilities. This workbook provides a practical approach and offers concrete exercises and easy client activities to make treatment more effective for this particular population. Learn More
