How do individuals who have committed sexual offences see the world and themselves, and how can understanding this inform their rehabilitation? Cognition, emotion and motivation are interdependent components underlying the ways in which we all think and behave, and much effort has been spent investigating them in the hope of understanding antisocial behaviour. The findings have been promising, but as yet they have not been synthesized into a single, definitive resource. Integrating the latest theory, research, and practice, Sexual Offending focuses exclusively on the cognition, emotion, and motivation of individuals who have engaged in incidents of sexual offending. Chapters begin with a topic definition and theoretical overview, followed by an outline of relevant research and a discussion of the implications for improving evidence–based practice.
