"...essential reading for anyone wishing to responsibly develop or evaluate work with sexual offenders who have intellectual disabilities.¬† It is an informative‚ yet readable‚ volume offering an honest appraisal of an emerging field." (Association of the Treatment for Sexual Abusers (ATSA) News Forum, Summer 2011)

‘Craig, Lindsay, and Browne have done a marvellous job of compiling this much-needed volume. The contributions provide a strong foundation for the development of effective interventions that promote offender responsibility and autonomy and increase their quality of life without compromising community safety. For anyone who works with individuals with intellectual disabilities who exhibit sexually aggressive behaviour, this book is a must-read.’
