"The second edition of Understanding, Assessing, and Rehabilitating Juvenile Sex Offenders showcases Phil Rich's experience and mastery of the research and clinical literature. In my view, this is an excellent therapy book, and like its predecessor, will help practitioners to work effectively and ethically with juvenile offenders. It is destined to become a classic." ?Tony Ward, MA, Ph.D., DipClinPsy, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand "Phil Rich is considered one of the world's leading authorities on how best to understand, assess, and treat juvenile sexual offenders, and this second edition of his excellent text shows why he is held in such high regard. All theoreticians, researchers, and practitioners whose work brings them in contact with juvenile sexual offenders should definitely read this remarkable book." ?W. L. Marshall, OC, FRSC, Ph.D., Director, Rockwood Psychological Services Ontario, Canada "Phil Rich's book, Understanding, Assessing, and Rehabilitating Juvenile Sexual Offenders Second Edition offers new and thought provoking ideas, updates and information, especially on developmental pathways. This book is one of the few publications on juvenile sexual offending that offers something new and revealing to the field." ?Robert E. Longo, LPC, NCC, ACS, BCIA-EEG, BCN Serendipity Healing Arts Lexington, North Carolina "Phil Rich masterfully fills the gap in the juvenile sexual offender treatment literature with a book that is neither introductory nor narrowly specialized. Seasoned veterans will appreciate his thoughtful and studied approach. Newcomers will find this book a vital go-to resource." ?David Prescott, LICSW, Clinical Director, Becket Programs of Maine Falmouth, Maine "Mind blowingly brilliant--Rich by name and rich in depth, detail, description and debate. An instant classic, Understanding, Assessing, and Rehabilitating Juvenile Sexual Offenders Second Edition is both comprehensive and challenging with its material and messages yet reassuringly accessible and practical." ?Martin C. Calder, Calder Training & Consultancy, Leigh, Lancashire, UK
