The majority of sex offender policies, often developed as quick fixes in response to high-profile cases, are not based on empirical evidence, nor have they demonstrated any significant reduction in offender recidivism. This new edition showcases alternative models that offer innovative and victim-centered approaches to combating sexual violence.
