Summary Reducing the odds of further revictimization by a convicted child molester requires a clear understanding of the offender's process and his or her ability to manipulate victims. With more than 25 years of experience in the field working with every type of child molester, Eric Leberg provides the information vital to recognizing the offender's patterns of deception and - just as important - how to respond with appropriate interventions or preventive measures. A basic yet comprehensive overview that is easy to read, Understanding Child Molesters uses cases and anecdotes to highlight and reinforce important issues and concepts.
