Psychological Interventions for Treatment of Adult Sex Offenders

By Belinda Brooks-Gordon and Charlotte Bilby

Abstract

Sexual offending is a public health issue and a social problem. Medical practitioners might assume from the volume of work published on treatments for sex offenders that clinically effective treatments are available. Indeed, psychological treatment is often mandated in the sentencing decision for sexual offenders. Yet the effectiveness of treatments is debated, and evidence for the efficacy of sex offender treatment programmes is often too readily accepted uncritically.
