In this chapter, the authors identify central themes that unite the disparate chapters in this volume and offer suggestions for future directions. The chapters have ranged from research reviews to integrated models, based on research-supported components, detailed case applications, and general guidance and practice tools. A common uniting theme is the importance of seeking and maintaining current knowledge relevant to treatment and other interventions, including research from related fields as appropriate. Judicious application and understanding of the literature is important. Future needs include addressing the training gap among both specialized providers and other professionals, addressing resource gaps, and including in our professional guidelines the requirement that professionals who make recommendations about services have sufficient knowledge to do so. Issues in cross-disciplinary communication and training of lawyers and judges are also addressed.
