Reviews for Counselling Male Sexual Offenders: A Strengths-Focused Approach
'I would expect that the majority of therapists who have bought books on sex addiction would want to buy this also. The book is very well written with a good authoritative tone but easy to read style. And there is nothing like this on the market.' Paula Hall, Author of Understanding and Treating Sex Addiction and Sex Addiction: The Partner's Perspective 'Sex offending is a concern in all countries, and is therefore a topic which is of relevance worldwide...This book manages to strike the balance between being a how to do book , whilst still being academically wide ranging...This book will be valuable to all counsellors who find themselves working with sex offenders.' Joanna Benfield, Editor of BACP Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
