Therapist Guide for Maintaining Change
Relapse Prevention for Adult Male Perpetrators of Child Sexual Abuse



November 1997 | 184 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Providing step-by-step guidelines to relapse prevention with adult male child sex abusers, this guide is based on the author's experience of piloting a unique cognitive-behavioural treatment approach in community-based, secure hospital and prison sex offender programmes. Hilary Eldridge presents the theoretical base for relapse prevention, and includes information on: the relapse process and its implications for assessment of perpetrator patterns; intervention in those patterns and maintenance of change; rationale for the exercises used in each phase; how to introduce the exercises; how to deal with client questions and resistance; and different ways of explaining the materials. The author also provides sample therapist/client dialogue.

The book is designed to be used in conjunction with the three-phased programme of its companion manual, Maintaining Change. One copy of the manual is provided free of charge as a package to purchasers of the Therapist Guide for Maintaining Change. This treatment package is ideal for all who work in a professional capacity with adult male sex offenders, and provides a clear map for personal change.

Maintaining Change

A Personal Relapse Prevention Manual

This user-friendly, step-by-step personal relapse prevention manual - designed to be used in conjunction with the Therapist Guide for Maintaining Change - focuses on the notion of control and taking responsibility for one's actions rather than on `cure'. The programme requires participants to be active in the change process, with the ultimate goal of being able to self-manage.

· Purchasers of Maintaining Change may photocopy individual exercises and handouts for use with their own clients or patients.

· Customers purchasing this two-volume set may purchase additional copies of Maintaining Change: A Personal Relapse Prevention Manual. Please write to Joyce Lynch at SAGE Publications Ltd for further details.
