This day long workshop reviews what we know and don’t know about juveniles with sexual behavior problems and are sexually aggressive. Considerable research has taken place in recent years; much of it highlights the fact that much of what our field believed in the past has turned out not to be true. Topics include a historical overview, research into re-offense rates and the factors associated with persistent sexual aggression. The workshop next explores recent advances in assessment and treatment with implications provided. This workshop also explores areas of recent controversy, such as the use of the polygraph and phallometry.
