The Next Steps
"With many different agencies involved in the assessment of sexual abuse, along with a plethora of models, this is a successful attempt to guide the professional through the assessment tools and research... It sets out the ordering of the various assessments excellently... the authors proceed beyond how to assemble and collate information, to show how the information can be analysed to set treatment goals and how these can, in turn, lead to the evaluation of success or failure, by reference to a ratio of the risk to re-offending... It enabled me to understand the process by which other people were carrying out assessments. The reference sections were immensely useful." Seen and Heard.
"Well researched, clearly presented and user-friendly... a model of the integration of theory and practice... Area Child Protection Committees and their constituent agencies should ensure the book is available as a guide to the development of services and as a reminder of one of the potential consequences when child protection fails." Community Care.
