--Dr Robin J. Wilson, Clinical Director, Florida CivilCommitment Center, U
'The research and treatment literature regarding sexualoffending has long focused on the misdeeds of men. However, as thescientific and popular focus on sexual offending has increased, sotoo has the realization that we have underestimated the extent of(and, accordingly, failed to appreciate the effects of) sexuallyinappropriate behaviour in women. In Female Sexual Offenders:Theory, Assessment and Treatment, Drs Theresa Gannon and FrancaCortoni present a collection of chapters by clinicians andresearchers knowledgeable about sexual violence in women. Thisunique and timely volume quite nicely combines theoreticalperspectives with suggestions for effective interventions, as wellas some thoughts regarding future directions--all gearedspecifically to women. A long time coming...this book was wellworth the wait.'
