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.
