“Stinson and Becker have opened a new and optimistic chapter in the so-far frustrating search for solutions to sexual violence. Offering respectful criticisms of prior therapeutic approaches, they provide an alternative that is standardized, can be systematically evaluated, and is supported by preliminary empirical studies. Ultimately, desistance from sexual crime depends on each offender's willingness to change; fortunately, the approach in this book is adherent to well-known principles of prosocial behavior change. Beautifully written, this comprehensive, practical treatment guide promises to be used and tested for years to come.”

—Joel A. Dvoskin, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, University of Arizona College of Medicine


“An enormously important contribution. In the last three decades, the approach to sexual offending has been almost unrelentingly punitive. Stinson and Becker outline a rigorous, empirically grounded approach to treatment, in a style that is accessible and clear. This book needs to be on the shelf of anyone assessing or treating someone who has committed a sexual offense. It will stand as a landmark in the evolution of sex offender treatment.”

“This manual addresses a vital criminal justice and public health issue. Without losing sight of public safety concerns, the authors identify methods for establishing a caring, empathic therapeutic alliance. The importance of basing therapeutic interventions on well-documented empirical evidence is properly emphasized. This is a thought-provoking work that educates rather than indoctrinates. It will be a useful resource for both clinicians and students.”

—Fred S. Berlin, MD, PhD, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; Director, National Institute for the Study, Prevention, and Treatment of Sexual Trauma


“This authoritative account of the SOS program by leading experts represents an important addition to the literature on treatment for sexual offending. SOS is founded on an incisive model of self-regulatory processes in affective, cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal domains. This innovative, step-by-step manual warrants the attention of researchers and practitioners who are committed to reducing the serious and lasting harm inflicted on society by sexual offenders.”

—Christopher J. Patrick, PhD, Department of Psychology, Florida State University
