“Ward, Laws, and Hudson make bold assertions challenging our preconceptions of assessment and treatment. However, taking a page from their own model, they develop these in a framework of promising approaches for improving assessment and treatment outcome, giving practitioners new ideas rather than simply providing what Dr. Laws refers to as "a list of Thou-Shalt-Nots". Although many readers will wish for more explicit applications to special populations (females, developmentally delayed offenders, those in denial), this book will inform the work of virtually all ATSA members.
