Risk and Protective Factors for Recidivism Among Juveniles Who Have Offended Sexually

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Risk factors for sexual recidivism among juveniles who have committed sexual offences (JSOs) remain poorly understood. The present study tested a list compiled by Worling and Långström (2003) of “supported”, “promising”, “possible”, and “unlikely” risk factors for sexual recidivism among 169 adolescents in a residential sex offending treatment program. Only opportunities to sexually reoffend predicted recidivism, but several additional factors were associated with sexual aggression during treatment and having previously offended sexually. These results suggest that assessing risk factors may be helpful in the treatment of JSOs, but that further research is needed on predictors of sexual recidivism.
