This book provides updated and timely case examples involving teachers, clergy and others that represent the fact that sexual abuse continues as an important topic that needs ongoing education and prevention.

The most current and updated diagnosing, assessing, and interviewing techniques are presented for the reader to address within the context of what the present literature and research cites as most appropriate, standard, and gold standard professional behaviors and assessment tools.
