   schema:description "This text reviews the major advances that have taken place over the past 20 years in the management of human sexual aggression. This work is intended to reflect what is known and what is not known about the most effective management practices and strategies for sexual offenders. It includes complete discussions of classification, assessment, and prediction. In addition, major controversies in the field are addressed with the goal of separating supposition from fact and myth from reality. By employing an empirical litmus test throughout, the authors are able to identify what is known; what are sound, yet empirically based, hunches; what is speculation; and what lies strictly in the realm of mythology. Written by a forensic psychologist and a forensic nurse, the book offers a unique dual perspective. With over 1400 references, this represents an important source of every facet of the management and disposition of known sex offenders."@en ;
