Description : A significant percentage of sexual abuse in the United States is committed by juveniles, and mental health professionals increasingly receive requests to evaluate these juveniles. With an emphasis on practicality and utility, Juvenile Sex Offenders fills a gap in the current literature by providing a thoughtful, thorough approach to evaluating and treating youth who have committed sexual offenses or have engaged in sexually abusive behavior. Serving as a functional guide, this text expertly prepares clinicians for the challenging task of evaluating juveniles, picking up where traditional clinical training often falls short and providing state-of-the-art assessment techniques as well as an overview of treatment modalities. Chapters highlight the many ways in which juveniles charged with sexual offenses differ from adults, the common dilemmas facing evaluators, and the changing perceptions and legal trends with respect to youth crime. Chapters also cover sexual development and behaviors among children and adolescents, risk factors and risk assessment, case examples for working with attorneys, and interventions and pharmacological approaches. Clinical practitioners with limited forensic training will benefit from the guidance on formal forensic evaluation and the review of literature on assessment approaches specific to youth, while forensic experts will gain developmental perspective in evaluating and treating young sexual offenders. Set in a hopeful and optimistic framework, Juvenile Sex Offenders is a practical, empirically based guide on the best practices in evaluating and treating this poorly understood and underserved population.

Description : Child sexual abuse is a serious and widespread problem that has been associated with a variety of short and long term consequences to victims, offenders, families, communities and society at large. In recent years, it has been recognized that up to 40% of sexual offenses occur at the hands of adolescent offenders (between 12-18 years of age). The literature suggests that early childhood familial experiences, specifically attachment deficits and experiencing abuse in childhood may be associated with offending behavior in adolescents. Important developments in attachment theory are reviewed and discussed as they relate to the etiology of offending behavior and resulting consequences. In this study, internal working models and the framework of Bartholomew's Four Category Model of Attachment (1991) are used to categorize participants based on their perceptions of the quality of their relationship with their supervisor (female caregiver) and personal histories of abuse. Study findings demonstrate that attachment style is significantly related to juvenile offender status (Sex Offender, Delinquent, and non-offending Comparison), and a significant number of Juvenile Sex Offenders report having suffered one or more types of childhood abuse. Finally, implications from this investigation are explored in regard to treatment and directions for future research are discussed.

Description : There has been an extraordinary amount of published research and theory on sexual assault by adult male offenders. Yet, little has been written about the juvenile or adolescent sex offender, either as a subject of study in his own right, or in an effort to understand the developmental processes which may lead to sexually assaultive behavior in adults. Filling a gap in the literature, this comprehensive volume provides a detailed examination of the juvenile sexual offender, and what is known about the development of sexually assaultive behavior. Written by leading researchers, chapters first define terms and concepts and outline the research, professional, and legal issues relevant to treatment of the juvenile sex offender. Salient historical, personality, and behavioral characteristics which may differentiate various important subgroupings of these offenders are also described. The book then focuses on the development of the juvenile sexual offender, and how this development differs from that of normal adolescents. Chapters examine how sexuality evolves and manifests itself in both the normal and the deviant teenager, and why deviant behaviors often continue into adulthood. Sexual arousal and preferences of the adolescent offender, and processes involving social bonds and influences on the development of deviant sexuality are also discussed. Finally, the book explores ways in which society might respond to prevent or control the occurrence of sexual assault by juveniles. A comprehensive approach to treatment is presented that encompasses criminal justice and mental health systems, cognitive-behavioral interventions, pharmacological approaches, relapse prevention, and supervision. Highly informative and useful, this text is particularly important to psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health clinicians working with juvenile sexual offenders, their families, and their victims. Similarly, professionals in forensic, developmental or child and family studies will also find it of particular interest. It also serves as an ideal text for advanced courses on juvenile sexual offenders, or as supplementary reading for students of forensic psychology or psychiatry.

Description : A critique of the justice system's response to sexual misconduct by children and adolescents in the United States. The author argues the American legal system fails to take age and developmental status into account when adjudicating young sexual offenders, responding as it would to an adult. Assumptions about juvenile sex offenders in current legislation and debate are often based only on presumed motives and inclinations of adult offenders. But seventy-five years of empirical data show that such assumptions are wrong. He proposes a series of reforms in juvenile and criminal court as well as sex offender registration laws.

Description : Multisystemic Therapy for Problem Sexual Behavior (MST-PSB; Borduin, Letourneau, Henggeler, & Swenson, 2009) is a family- and community-based treatment for juvenile sexual offenders that has shown long-term efficacy in two randomized clinical trials (i.e., university-based trials). However, the long-term effectiveness (i.e., a trial conducted in a community setting) of MST-PSB has yet to be evaluated. The present study provided a 10.2-year postbaseline follow-up of 94 juvenile sexual offenders who were randomized to receive either MST-PSB or treatment-as-usual (TAU; cognitive-behavioral group therapy) in an effectiveness trial. This follow-up examined both criminal (i.e., misdemeanor and felony arrests) and noncriminal (i.e., financial and family-related civil suits) outcomes among the former participants. Between-groups analyses indicated that MST-PSB was no more effective than TAU on most criminal and noncriminal outcomes. However, those individuals who received MST-PSB were found to have been fined at a lower rate by the criminal court system than those individuals who received TAU. The results indicate that future research should examine factors (i.e., low therapist adherence to treatment, need for booster sessions, low severity of pretreatment sexual offending) that may have muted the effects of MST-PSB in the present study.

Description : The book argues the case for the usefulness of an empirically based understanding of the internal world of juvenile sex offenders as a way of humanely relating to their difficulties. It details the extent and nature of juvenile sex offending and its impact on victims and provides an extensive psychoanalytically oriented description of this offender group. The background of these offenders is examined, focusing on their experience of abuse, especially sexual abuse. Attention is paid to the unique characteristics of these offenders, particularly their attachment difficulties. The value of attachment theory and the concepts of psychopathy and malignant narcissism are then explored as a means of viewing their internal world. This internal world is also viewed through an empirical lens, which reveals them to have impaired psychic representations of human relationship, different needs for relationship and, in the most psychopathic group, an obfuscation of that need.The implications of these findings are then considered and the application of these understandings of their internal world is then explored. Firstly, issues related to assessment are addressed and, following detailed clinical case examples of their differences, their treatment needs are examined. In particular, the utility of a proposed modified version of Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT) is considered as part of a continuum of psychoanalytically oriented treatment options. Finally, there is a reflection on the reality that juvenile sex offending represents, with some concluding thoughts about addressing this ongoing and distressing problem.

Description : Sex Crimes and Sex Offenders: Research and Realities provides an overview of social scientific theory and research on sex crimes and sex offenders. Most other books on the market are focused on a single issue—such as treatment, rape, pedophilia, theory, etc. This book is unique in that it covers the most current theory and research along with individual cases of sex crimes (e.g., Kobe Bryant, Jerry Sandusky, and other case studies), effectively linking theory and research with the realities of sex crimes and sex offenders as well as their victims. Vandiver, Braithwaite, and Stafford are careful to dispel myths and to focus on the heterogeneity of sex crimes and sex offenders, and not on any one issue or population or theory. Instead, they weave a framework using a full range of theoretical concepts and research data to integrate their discussions of crimes, offenders, victims, treatments, and policy implications. The result is a valuable resource for students and early-stage researchers investigating sex crimes or offenders.

Description : Adult sexual offenders diagnosed with a paraphilia have been shown to display higher rates of recidivism, commit a greater number of sexual and violent offenses and benefit less from conventional sexual offender treatment programs (Bader, Schoeneman-Morris, Scalora, & Casady, 2008; Craig, Browne, Beech, & Stringer, 2006; Ellis, Doorbar, & Johnston, 1954). Despite the powerful influence of paraphilic interests, this area of research has remained under-explored within juvenile sexual offender samples. The purpose of this study is to assess the prevalence of paraphilic interests amongst a sample of 483 adjudicated and incarcerated male juvenile sexual offenders. In addition, the question of whether the presence of a paraphilic interest or multiple paraphilic interests influence the expression of personality characteristics and risk of criminal recidivism will be investigated. The data analyzed in the present study was accumulated through the grant-funded Accountability Based Juvenile Sexual Offender Assessment and Treatment Program. Evaluations of paraphilic interests, personality characteristics and risk of recidivism were performed using empirically based self-report measures and clinician rating scales. Data collected from these measures was analyzed using one-way between-groups multivariate analyses of variance, one-way between-groups analyses of variance and independent sample t-tests. Results revealed that a substantial proportion of this sample exhibited paraphilic interests. Assessment of personality characteristics and risk of recidivism indicated that juvenile sexual offenders endorsing a paraphilic interest possessed a more disturbed personality profile and higher risk of criminal recidivism, with multiple paraphilic interest offenders displaying the most concerning forensic profile. Although findings of the present study were found to be consistent with the existing literature, several limitations compromised the validity of this investigation. Reliance upon selfreport measures, procedural methods, and characteristics of the sample diminished the strength of the results obtained. Further research is needed to correct for the limitations of this study and expand upon findings.

Description : Based on key research into assessment, treatment and recidivism, this book offers practical guidance on improving intervention techniques with sex offenders. The contributors explore the monitoring and surveillance strategies and cognitive-behavioural techniques currently used both in prison and in the community, and give clear directions for future practice. Providing a detailed overview of the typologies and characteristics of offenders, they suggest strategies for managing different kinds of offender, including children and young people who are sexually aggressive. The Sex Offenders Act and the Crime and Disorder Act emphasise the need for effective community management of the predatory paedophile. Reviewing the recent growth in multi-agency approaches to this challenge, the book discusses how police, prisons and social work departments can share information and collaborate effectively, and will be essential reading for probation officers, prison staff, social workers and anyone involved in the assessment and management of sex offenders.

Description : Juvenile sexual offenders (SOs) have been found to account for a significant proportion of sexual offenses. A critical gap has been identified in our knowledge regarding the role of sexual fantasy and sexual behavior in juvenile sexual offending, even though these variables have been identified as an important treatment target for this population. Specifically, it is not clear if SOs differ significantly from juvenile non-sexual offenders (NSOs) in their sexual fantasies and sexual behavior and as such, if reports of fantasies and past sexual behaviors should be used as a target for sex offender specific treatment. This study explored differences on these two critical dimensions in a sample of 268 adjudicated, male, juvenile SOs and NSOs, in the care of the Oregon Youth Authority. Participants resided in four youth correctional facilities across the state of Oregon. The goals of this study were to, first, investigate differences in sexual fantasies experienced in the last 12 months by these subgroups. Second, to explore the predictive utility of deviant sexual fantasies and sexual behavior in predicting group membership (i.e., SO or NSO). Third, this study investigated differences in the relationship between deviant sexual fantasy and deviant sexual behavior for these two offender groups (i.e., SO and NSO). Finally, subgroup differences between these two groups' use of "sexting" were explored. Solitary sexual acts and voyeurism were significant predictors of offender group membership, after controlling for nondeviant sexual behavior, and significant group differences were also found in consensual sexting behavior. Overall, analyses focused on sexual fantasy resulted in nonsignificant results. Findings are discussed in relation to implications for treatment, prevention, and policy work in this area.

Description : This comprehensive text examines the unique characteristics of sexual offenses and the resulting laws that pertain specifically to them, including the causes and treatment of sexual offenses as well as the policy implications of research outcomes. Sexual offenders are often treated differently than other offenders (by both the community and the criminal justice system) as a result of public scorn and recidivism. This distinctive book answers the call for thorough, research-based information on this inherently controversial subject.
