In work with juvenile sexual offenders, it has become increasingly common to link disturbed or under-developed early attachment relationships to the later development of pathology. Beginning with a detailed and critical overview of attachment theory, Attachment and Sexual Offending provides an analysis of research that links attachment theory to sexually abusive behavior in children and adolescents. This complete guide also extensively covers literature that relates attachment to adult sexual offending. A comprehensive framework for applying attachment theory to the treatment of juvenile sexual offenders is also included, providing steps for developing and implementing attachment treatment. This important text will appeal to anyone interested in attachment theory and its application to clinical and forensic psychology. It is a valuable resource for professionals working with sexually abusive juveniles in a range of clinical settings, and will also be of interest to those working with adult sexual offenders. “This is a fascinating and important book” —Tony Ward, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand “Attachment and Sexual Offending is a thought provoking book that challenges the traditional ways in which we have thought about, assessed and treated juvenile sexual abusers. Phil Rich's book is brilliant and should be read by any professional who works with, and/or comes in contact with, juveniles who sexually abuse.” —Robert E. Longo, Independent Consultant and Trainer, USA “Attachment and Sexual Offending is a must for anybody working in the field, as well as for those who want to know more about this area.” —Anthony Beech, University of Birmingham, UK
