A treatment service for adolescent sex offenders

  • David Will (a1)
Abstract

A case-note survey was carried out on the first 50 referrals to a treatment service for adolescent sex offenders. The average rate of referral was 10.5 per year and all referrals were male. of those who attended, 66% showed evidence of psychiatric morbidity, while only a minority had a past history of child sexual abuse. The majority had offended against victims known to them. Treatment was labour-intensive with a mean of 19 sessions being provided per patient. of those taken on for treatment, 2.6% re-offended, while of those not offered treatment, 25% did so.
