Abstract

P1: FMN Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment [saj] PL100-168 October 13, 1999 3:17 Style file version June 30, 1999 Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 12, No. 1, 2000 As we enter the new millennium it seems fitting both to reflect on the past and the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers’ accomplishments and to look toward the future and envision what we hope it can be. Our organization has steadily grown in membership over the years and significant research and advances have been made in the assessment and treatment of sexual abusers. This journal has served, and will continue to serve, as a major source of publication for the advances being made in the field. We are indebted to my pre- decessor, Dr. Barry Maletzky, for his editorial direction during the 1990s, to the Journal’s Editorial Board, and to those individuals who graciously agree to serve as ad hoc reviewers when asked. A debt of gratitude is owned to Connie Isaac, our managing editor. Both Dr. Maletzky and I have counted on her insight and organization to ensure that the journal is completed and delivered to the publisher in a timely fashion. One of the changes you will notice is that the journal now has three Associate Editors representing the various disciplines that constitute our membership, as well as differing areas of specialization. Additionally, I want to welcome the new members of our Editorial Board. As we look to the future it is reassuring to see that more students are interested in learning about sexual abuse and specializing in this area.
