“I very much enjoyed reading this book; it contains excellent chapters, and demonstrates the advances that have been made in recent years in the understanding and treatment of offenders. There is no doubt that this book will be of immense interest and use to practitioners. The book is very informative of what is currently available for treating offenders and includes user friendly forms, worksheets, and examples of case histories, which will aid the practitioner. The book offers hope to practitioners who have to deal with challenging offenders, most of whom lack motivation to change. In short, I found reading this book fascinating and inspirational.” Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine, 2014
