  • Meta-analysis of treatment for child Sexual behavior problems: practice elements and outcomes
    Child maltreatment, 2008
    Co-Authors: Annick St. Amand, David Bard, Jane F. Silovsky
    Abstract:

    This meta-analysis of 11 treatment outcome studies evaluated 18 specific treatments of Sexual behavior problems (SBP) as a primary or secondary target. Specifically, it examines relations among child characteristics, treatment characteristics (including practice elements), and short-term outcome (including Sexual and general behavior problems). Utilizing pre- and postintervention results, the overall degree of change over the course of treatment was estimated at a 0.46 and 0.49 standard deviation decline in SBP and general behavior problems, respectively. As hypothesized, the caregiver practice element Parenting/Behavior Management Skills (BPT) predicted the Child Sexual Behavior Inventory (and the Child Behavior Checklist when BPT was combined with caregiver Rules about Sexual Behaviors). In contrast, practice elements that evolved from Adult Sex Offender (ASO) treatments were not significant predictors. BPT and preschool age group provided the best model fit and more strongly predicted outcome than broad treatment type classifications (e.g., Play Therapy or Cognitive Behavior Therapy). Results question current treatments for children with SBP that are based on ASO models of treatment without caregiver involvement.

  • Juveniles Who Sexually Offend: Recommending a Treatment Program and Level of Care
    Child and adolescent psychiatric clinics of North America, 2011
    Co-Authors: R. Gregg Dwyer, Elizabeth J. Letourneau
    Abstract:

    Specialized interventions for juveniles who have committed Sex offenses have been widely available for 25 years. These interventions initially were based largely on Adult Sex Offender interventions, with little consideration of developmental and other differences that distinguish juveniles from Adult Offenders. More recently, interventions have been developed that address youth-specific factors associated with problem Sexual behaviors and that include a stronger family focus. This article reviews the history of intervention approaches, summarizes specialized evaluation methods and addresses the assessment of juvenile recidivism risk.

  • Feel good legislation: Prevention or calamity
    Child abuse & neglect, 1996
    Co-Authors: Robert E. Freeman-longo
    Abstract:

    The following paper was prepared by the Safer Society Foundation regarding the issue of public notification of convicted Sex Offender release to the community. It does not represent the views or opinions of any other organization or group, professional or otherwise. The Safer Society advocates for community safety, victim restitution and treatment, and quality comprehensive Sex Offender treatment. While the Safer Society supports Adult Sex Offender registration laws in general, it is totally opposed to public notification laws. This document is designed to assist states considering public notification to explore related issues and the impact of public notification on the greater community, including citizens, families, victims, and Offenders. Numbers preceding the following points do NOT indicate relative importance, but are used for ease of reference.

  • Treating high-risk rapists in a New Zealand intensive prison programme
    Psychology Crime & Law, 2013
    Co-Authors: Nick Wilson, Glen Kilgour, Devon L. L. Polaschek
    Abstract:

    The focus of this article is on the pilot development and implementation of a prison-based intensive treatment programme for high-risk Adult-victim rape Offenders in New Zealand. Advances in actuarial risk assessment enabled the identification of a group of high-risk Adult Sex Offenders for whom no dedicated treatment programme existed. Based on a review of the treatment literature for rapists, a pilot programme was developed called the Adult Sex Offender Treatment Programme (ASOTP). The programme, based on the risk–need–responsivity and cognitive behavioural therapy principles, also used an adaptation of Young’s schema therapy to address personality responsivity issues and specific idiosyncratic schema associated with participant offence pathways identified by the Massachusetts Treatment Centre classification (Version 3 for rapists). Measures of responsivity and dynamic risk administered in the ASOTP indicated some success in addressing treatment needs for the pilot participants (n=10). The programme has…
