Last Chance for Parents to Tell Your Stories for Our Parent 2 Parent Project!

Parent 2 Parent is NEARI Press and Training Center's new initiative, through which we will produce written and online resources for parents and caregivers of youth with sexual behavior problems (SBPs). Are you the parent of a child with SBPs? We would love to speak with you if you are willing to share your story with us to inform our development of new materials serving families!

You can participate anonymously and with full confidentiality by completing a short survey.

Here is a short survey for you to complete. You will receive a $10 gift card to as a thank you for your work with us if we can confirm the survey is fully complete.

Are you a clinician who can refer parents you work with to us? Clinicians who refer parents to us will also receive a gift from NEARI Press--a choice of one of three of our excellent books: Assessing Youth: A Primer by David Prescott, Who Am I and Why Am I in Treatment? by Rob Longo, or Very Different Voices by David Prescott and Robin Wilson!

Featured Book

NEARI Press is proud to feature a brand-new book by Peel Behavioral Services and Robin Wilson, Ph.D.--Passport to Independence: A Good Lives Workbook.

Many treatment programs for persons who have sexually offended use a Good Lives framework that suggests that successful people are able to manage their lives in a variety of important domains. However, some of those domains can be a bit challenging for clients to fully appreciate and understand. Passport to Independence is not a treatment curriculum in and of itself. Rather, it is a collection of exercises that treatment providers and clients can use to make concepts such as “community” and “being good at work and play” clearer and easier to incorporate into clients' lives moving forward. Passport to Independence covers all of the components of life that clients in treatment need to consider to be successful.

Please visit our bookstore to order the book. Just released on November 27, 2017. Passport to Independence is now available! Copies are going fast, so please order soon!
