Updated to keep pace with rapidly changing laws and policies, this second edition features an increased emphasis on policy and program alternatives.

It incorporates new content on high-profile issues affecting adolescent sex offenders, critical analyses of the results of recent studies on sex offender policies, effective approaches in preventing recidivism, and cutting-edge research in the fields of criminal justice, law, forensic psychology, and social work.
