Offense-Supportive Attitudes among the Sex Offending Population

Identification of common sex offense supportive attitudes is an important component of the evaluation of adults who have committed a sexual offense to assist in determining overall recidivism risk and providing appropriate treatment recommendations. Further, it is important for providers to be able to identify and address these supportive attitudes with clients in sex offense specific treatment. This presentation will assist both evaluators and providers in understanding how these different attitudes may be identified through various sources of information. More broadly, an appropriate assessment of these attitudes fits within the framework of the Risk-Needs-Responsivity model.
