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



Abstract:

Given that clinicians’ assessments of juvenile sex offenders’ risk of sexual recidivism may influence whether a juvenile is included on a sex offender registry, it is important to examine factors that might bias clinicians’ judgments. The present study examined the impact of clinicians’ opinions about recent sex offender registration legislation, the Adam Walsh Act, on their risk-assessments. Results indicated that the more clinicians’ supported the Act, the more likely they were to believe that a juvenile was likely to sexually recidivate in the near future, and that communities, police, and individual citizens should be alerted to the juvenile’s sex-offender status.
