Assessing Callous-Unemotional Traits in Juvenile Sex Offenders: Does Parent Report Contribute to an Understanding of Risk Factors?

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



Abstract:

The importance of self- and parent-report of Callous-Unemotional (CU) traits in predicting risk factors in sex offenders was investigated. Ninety-four detained male youth were administered youth and parent versions of the Inventory of Callous-Unemotional Traits (ICU), a delinquency risk assessment tool, and a sexual offending risk assessment tool. Both parent- and self-report of CU traits were related to higher delinquency and to increased sexual delinquency. Parent-report uniquely predicted static sexual risk, while self-report uniquely predicted dynamic sexual risk. Evidence supports the importance of including both parent- and self-report of CU traits in the comprehensive assessment of sexually offending youth.
