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.

Building Motivation for Change in Sexual Offenders
Edited by David S. Prescott
$39.95

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
