Please log in with your CFS username and password when prompted.This research project carries out a preliminary evaluation of a sex offender treatment programme delivered on an individual basis. It uses the views and experiences of five participants to ascertain whether the advantages of the particular programme and factors relating to the style of facilitation which this programme promotes and research dictates should be present in an effective sex offender treatment programme, can be evidenced.\ud A semi-structured interview schedule was devised and transcripts of the five interviews were recorded verbatim. The transcripts were then analysed using methods influenced by content analysis and the themes related to the evidence which was being looked for were noted. Additional themes which emerged from the interviews were also noted.\ud Results indicate that on the whole the participants did evidence, to varying degrees, many of themes being looked for. The project concludes that this preliminary evaluation is positive and continued use of the programme would appear to be beneficial. Implications for its future use and suggestions for future research are raised.University of Leiceste
