The fourth volume in Martin Calder’s series about young people who sexually abuse covers a wide range of new, interesting and relevant areas, as
well as revisiting areas and issues that continue to be of interest, writes Andrew Durham.
There are 20 chapters written by 38 contributors, providing a UK and international (USA, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand) perspective from authors from
a range of disciplines and areas of practice within this specialist field.
There are two chapters covering issues of diversity, and an informative section on emerging personality disorder drawing together and summarising a
wide range of relevant research.
There are two short chapters covering learning disability and one exploring sexual offending and new technologies.
Calder has drawn together a wide range of interesting, relevant and up-to-date material which will be of interest to practitioners wishing to work
holistically with young people who sexually abuse.
