Prevalence of Risk Assessment-Relevant Factors among Sexually Abusive Clergy: A Comparison with Convicted Sex Offenders

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



Abstract:

Although institutions use established risk assessment tools to assess sexually abusive clergy, it is unclear if these preexisting instruments are applicable to this unique, understudied group of perpetrators. The current study compares the offending patterns of sexually abusive clergy and convicted sex offenders on risk factors from two sex offender risk assessment instruments (Static-99 and MnSOST-R). Results indicate sexually abusive clergy differed from sex offenders on risk assessment items across several domains. These differences will be discussed in terms of the potential utility of these instruments in assessing risk of sexual perpetration in the Catholic Church.
