Understanding Child Molesters
Taking Charge

June 1997 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Reducing the odds of further revictimization by a convicted child molester requires a clear understanding of the offender's ability to manipulate victims. With more than 25 years of experience in the field working with every type of child molester, Eric Leberg provides the information vital to recognizing the offender's patterns of deception and - just as important - how to respond with appropriate interventions or preventive measures.

This easy-to-read overview uses cases and anecdotes to highlight and reinforce important issues and concepts. A valuable resource for those who deal with offenders on a regular basis, the book covers: the sex offender evaluation report, pre-sentence investigation report and criminal history records; legal and ethical means of obtaining information on the offender; and how the North American criminal justice system works and how it affects offenders. The authors also offer suggestions on how to utilize the criminal justice system as a resource in preventing revictimization and/or reestablishing new relationships with convicted sex offenders.
