The frequency of Autism Spectrum Disorders being diagnosed has risen significantly in recent years. During this same time the numbers of children and teens identified with problematic sexual behaviors have also increased. Therapists trained in traditional treatment strategies for people with sexual behavior problems are more and more frequently called upon to work with these youth, but the assumptions and methods that work so well with other clients often fail with this population. This timely book provides essential information about the Autism Spectrum Disorders, how to adjust the assessment process to accommodate this disorder, and practical approaches to understanding unique family dynamics, and healthy and problematic sexual behaviors. This book also provides insights to working with Autism Spectrum cases when there is the co-occurrence of intellectual disabilities and/or various mental health problems. Learn More

Footprints: Steps to a Healthy Life

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

RESPECT: Professional Manual
Tom Keating

Few approaches to sex offender management/treatment attempt to be transformative, choosing instead to teach skills, change thinking and manage behaviors. But Tom Keating has chosen to challenge his clients not only to manage themselves but to transform the way they approach life. RESPECT is both a philosophy of living and a very specific set of exercises and approaches to help youth who have abused move to abuse-free lives. This is not a "manual", albeit there are specific steps in the process. To make RESPECT work, the clinician using the approach must have integrated its principles as deeply as his/her clients. RESPECT begins with a “bow”, a simple gesture with profound meaning, as recognized in every martial arts tradition. RESPECT is action, and integrity, a “way” to finding SELF and in the journey learning to RESPECT another and live without abusing. RESPECT is seven steps, that integrate elements of Relapse Prevention, Thinking Errors work and mulit-sensory and brain-based approaches to learning. RESPECT has helped young people both in the U.S. and abroad. The Clinician’s Manual and the Student Workbook with CD help both practitioner and client embark on this journey together. As the author states in his preface: I hope that this work will convey the essence of RESPECT to you, and I bow to you in mutual RESPECT for the invaluable work that you are doing. Learn More
