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



Abstract:

There are no empirically validated measures of juvenile sex offendersÂ’ amenability to treatment, which would enable more accurate and consistent recommendations to juvenile court judges regarding decisions such as appropriate level of care for particular youth. As a first step towards developing a tool, this study surveyed members of two professional societies devoted to the study of sex offender evaluation and treatment. Participants rated the relevance of 80 variables to sex offender-specific treatment amenability. Based on information provided by 158 respondents, variables believed to be indicative of positive and negative treatment amenability are identified. Implications and future directions are discussed.
