If, in twenty years time, we should review the natural history of work with sex offenders in the UK, will our current achievements and enthusiasm prove to have been merely another passing fad, kindled by a brief surge of therapeutic optimism? Will work with sex offenders remain a special interest area for a few dedicated practitioners? Indeed, some are wondering that now. Perhaps we might then look back and consider whether we laid the foundations deeply or strongly enough to sustain and develop the field? Although we cannot know now whether the foundations will prove sufficient, this book has sought to reflect something of the achievements so far. These include:
• a multi-factorial model of aetiology which recognises the interplay of societal, environmental and interpersonal factors contributing to sexually abusive behaviour;
• the location of the work within a multi-disciplinary child protection framework with the clear overall objective of protecting children;
• the growing recognition by central government and senior managers of their roles in co-ordinating a strategic response;
• the application of research to theoretical models of intervention;
• an eclectic approach to treatment and a commitment to evaluate outcomes;
• the establishment of a national organisation, NOTA;
• the development of practice standards and the acknowledgement that for some staff this will not be an appropriate area of practice;
• the application of knowledge about sexual offenders in strengthening
