Containing a range of materials for use with juveniles and children who sexually abuse, as well as with their families, this work offers guidance on which materials are most appropriate for each context. The text offers guidance on how the information can best be used when considering placement, treatment, risk management strategies, and the management of abusers within a substitute care environment. How individuals can prepare themselves for this work and how they can cope with its impact are set out as part of a wider management strategy and support package. The role of assessment in sexual abuse work is examined in the contexts of underpinning philosophies, setting boundaries, interviewing strategies, and of the separate components of the work. At the start of the book, the evolution and scope of sexual abuse by juveniles and children is set in the context of what has been the frequently blurred boundary of acceptable and unacceptable sexual behaviours. The boundary is then redefined in terms that make it possible to differentiate between what is "normal" and what is "abusive". A concluding chapter looks at what is the way forward.
