Summary
In this book, legal and mental health experts analyze controversial new legal strategies adopted over the past decade to prevent sexual violence. The contributors examine innovative measures, including sexual predator laws used to commit dangerous sex offenders to mental hospitals after they have served their sentences, sex offender registration and notification laws, chemical castration of convicted sex offenders, intensive supervision programs for sex offenders living in the community, and programs for treating sexually abused children. Contributors also explore the serious constitutional questions these new legal strategies raise regarding the rights of sex offenders who have been fully punished. They also consider how much these laws cost and whether they actually prevent sexual violence. Experts discuss what we know and do not know about sex offenders: are they dangerous, who are their victims, and can they be treated. Psychologists and other mental health experts working with sexually dangerous offenders as well as lawyers, policymakers, and students in these fields may find this a useful book.
