Brief Description

Pathways Fourth Edition is a structured, guided workbook for use with adolescent males and females with sexual behavior problems, including but not limited to sexual offending. Pathways Fourth Edition focuses extensively on helping clients develop healthy and responsible patterns of thinking and behavior, and also provides concrete guidance about how to control sexual feelings in healthy and responsible ways, including guidelines for successful friendships and dating relationships. Relapse prevention techniques are reinforced, as is a new focus on helping clients develop healthy and responsible lifestyles by creating a Healthy Living Project to follow. Pathways Fourth Edition includes new skill and knowledge-based exercises that aim to help clients identify feelings, manage anger, and become more sensitive to others. Pathways Fourth Edition also provides concrete tools for completing the victim clarification (apology) process and the family reunification process. This workbook is a treatment tool that hopefully leads the client towards a lifestyle of honesty, responsibility, sensitivity, and integrity.
