International-Perspectives-BP.jpgMichael Miner, PhD, is one of five editors on the new book International Perspectives on the Assessment and Treatment of Sex Offenders: Theory, Practice and Research released by Wiley-Blackwell this year.

This book represents a departure from recent works on this subject. It presents a comprehensive overview of current theories and practices relating to the assessment and treatment of sex offenders throughout the world, including the United States, Europe, and Australasia. The chapters cover all the major developments in the areas of risk assessment, treatment, and management, including controversial and rarely addressed issues, such as chemical castration and the ethics of sexual offender treatment and management. Unlike most books on this topic, which tend to represent the perspectives of those in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, this is a truly international and multi-disciplinary volume that integrates the Anglo-American and the European perspectives on sexual offender issues.

The project was supported by the International Association for the Treatment of Sexual Offenders (IATSO).
