Case studies in sexual deviance; toward evidence-based practice.


Case studies in sexual deviance; toward evidence-based practice.

Ed. by William T. O'Donohue.



236 pages


International perspectives on forensic mental health


O'Donohue edits this compilation on the treatment of paraphilias, beginning with an introduction presenting the case studies not as evidence of treatment effectiveness, but as concrete examples of treatment application, with choices made about how to handle all the un-idealized variables and complicating factors such as comorbid diagnoses present in real situations. Chapters present case studies of youth problem sexual behavior, rape, offender rehabilitation, sexual masochism, voyeurism, exhibitionism, telephone scatologia, and possession of child pornography. The process of assessing the facts of the case, choosing between various treatment approaches, and monitoring progress is emphasized.
