Use of Psychometric Measures to Identify Dimensions of Sex Offender Risk and Need

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



Abstract:

The present study examined dimensions of sex offender risk and need in a sample of 359 treated adult male sex offenders. The Static 99 and Violence Risk Scale-Sexual Offender version were rated from file review. A self-report battery completed pre- and post-treatment was subjected to factor analysis, revealing three risk-need domains: Sex Offender Cognition, Anger/Hostility, and Socio-Emotional Deficits. The three factors and a composite measure (created by their summation) predicted sexual and violent recidivism to varying degrees, with post-treatment measures demonstrating better prediction. Change scores on the composite measure were associated with reductions in violence after controlling for static risk.
