The forming of specialist teams has greatly aided the development of effective work with perpetrators. However, a side-effect has been a mystique about this field; non-specialists do not feel encouraged to understand this work. The authors feel that this is counter productive, as in fact 94% of work with perpetrators is undertaken by individuals with little support, specialist training or supervision. Only 6% of known perpetrators are treated in established specialist programmes.
The underpinning theory and the basic key principles of practice with this group can be acquired by any professional worker. This book provides an orientation to front-line staff to enable them to contribute effectively to the protection of children.
The book sets out:
The authors have between them over twenty years of experience in working and training in this field. In this book they have attempted to disseminate their knowledge. They have provided an accessible, readable and informative ‘how to’ guide. It will appeal to any front line worker who seeks practical advice to develop his or her competence in face to face work with this group.
