Summary:Since to date there is no record of systematic experience in treating sex offenders by psychotherapy, this book fills a gap in the literature. It is especially important at a time when the courts have also called for the treatment - instead of merely the punishment - of these delinquents. For the first time a report of not only individual cases, but also of a methodical study of a large patient group is available.

The book thus contributes significantly to the present discussion of methods beyond those of classical psychotherapy in the treatment of sex offenders
