Few approaches to sex offender management/treatment attempt to be truly transformative. Tom Keating has chosen to challenge his clients to learn how to manage their behaviors and transform the way they approach life. RESPECT is both a philosophy of living and a very specific set of exercises to help youth and young adults who have sexually abused move to abuse-free lives.
This beautiful full color Student Workbook begins a journey for the professional and the student that is a unique approach with specific steps in the process.
To make RESPECT work, the professional must have integrated its principles as deeply as his/her students. RESPECT begins with a “bow”, a simple gesture with profound meaning, as recognized in every martial arts tradition. RESPECT is action, and integrity, a “way” to finding SELF and in the journey learning to RESPECT another and live without abusing. RESPECT is seven steps, that integrate elements of Relapse Prevention, Thinking Errors work and mulit-sensory and brain-based approaches to learning. RESPECT has helped young people both in the U.S. and abroad. The Clinician’s Manual and the Student Workbook with CD help both practitioner and client embark on this journey together. As the author states in his preface: “I hope that this work will convey the essence of RESPECT to you, and I bow to you in mutual RESPECT for the invaluable work that you are doing.”
