Saturday Morning Room #2

Sex Offender Trauma: The treatment of offenders has traditionally looked at ways to identify denial mechanisms, evaluate the risk of re-offense and provide structure for individuals who often lack it. Treatment often focuses the offender on the acceptance of responsibility and accountability for their actions. The impact on victims and their families is often discussed, but the trauma offenders and their family experience cannot be overlooked. By understanding sex offender trauma, one can better tailor the treatment plan and specific needs of the individual.
