Stephen M Hudson, PhD, DipClinPsyc, was Director of Clinical Psychology at the Department of Psychology, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. He was instrumental in the establishment of New Zealand’s first specialized treatment unit for child molesters at Rolleston Prison, Kia Marama, in 1989. His research work was grouped into three major areas: intimacy and attachment style, cognitive distortions, and offence pathways/relapse prevention models. The results of these research projects were published in more than 80 books, book chapters and scholarly articles. He co edited a number of important books in the sexual offending area, including Remaking relapse prevention, Sage, (with D.R Laws and T. Ward, 2000), the Sourcebook of treatment programs for sexual offenders, Plenum (with W. L. Marshall, Y. A. Fernandez, and S. M. Hudson, 1998), and The juvenile sex offender, Guilford (with H. E. Barbaree, and W. L. Marshall). Dr Hudson died after a short battle with cancer on 1 November 2001.
