Sexual Offending presents the latest theory and research relating to the social cognition, emotion, and motivational goals of individuals who have committed sexual offences.

  • Explores how individuals who have committed sexual offences perceive the world and themselves, and how understanding this can inform their rehabilitation
  • Provides a broad-based view of cognition, and explores the complex relationship between cognition, emotion and associated constructs such as motivational goals
  • Integrates recent work on female sexual offenders alongside the literature on their male counterparts, providing researchers and practitioners with a single resource
  • A valuable handbook for researchers, practitioners and students concerned with understanding and rehabilitating individuals who have committed sexual offences
