Internet Child Pornography Offenders vs. Child Molesters: Part I: Role of Antisociality in Predicting Risk of Child Battery

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



Abstract:

Although considerable resources have been dedicated to reducing Internet-based child sexual victimization, little has been done to identify and discriminate among those apprehended with child pornography, particularly those at highest risk to commit a hands-on sexual offense involving a child. This task has been the focus of ongoing programmatic research as part of a large, federally-funded effort. The present study examined and tested two simple hypotheses: the probability of being a child molester would increase as a function of antisocial behavior (a temporally stable pattern of conduct disordered behavior beginning in childhood and extending into adulthood) and decrease as a function of preoccupation with the Internet. We studied confidential survey responses from two groups of offenders (167 Internet only offenders vs. 174 Child Molesters). Employing logistic regression, a simple two-factor model – conduct disorder and Internet preoccupation – yielded a c-statistic (AUC) of .754. We will present a graph reflecting the predicted probability of being a child molester given input along these two dimensions (conduct problems and Internet preoccupation). In addition, we will examine and present the incremental increase in predictive efficacy when other antecedent life events are included, such as a history of child maltreatment and negative emotions/symptoms in childhood.
