Sexual Offender Treatment

We provide effective outpatient treatment to adolescents and adults who are at risk to commit a harmful sexual act or who have committed an illegal sexual offense. Whenever possible we include their families in the treatment process.

We use a treatment model that empowers client to improve their lives, manage risk for future harmful behaviors, and increases the safety of the community.

Treatment begins with intake sessions where available records are reviewed and personal interviews are completed. Intake considerations include personal history, trauma, attachment, mental health diagnosis, patterns of sexual behaviors, family and relationships. Using a unique battery of assessment instruments to set the stage for customized treatment allowing for focused treatment and optimized time and effort.

After intake is completed we develop a treatment plan and assign clients to a treatment group (if appropriate) is determined. Treatment typically consists of weekly group therapy and monthly individual and or family therapy.

The outpatient sex offender treatment program is comprised of education and therapy using a group process. Treatment covers a number of topics all related to personal and sexual history, patterns of abusive behaviors, relationships, communication, impact of harmful behavior, management of emotions, healthy sexuality and developing a prevention plan to prevent relapse.

We offer programs for both juvenile and adult offenders. Length of treatment depends on each client’s needs and level of motivation.

Psychosexual Evaluations

This evaluation consists of one or more interviews with the client. Several questionnaires, indexes and assessments are completed including sexual inventories specifically designed for the evaluation of sex offenders. Psychosexual Evaluations, also known as risk evaluations, consist of one or more interviews with the client. Several questionnaires, indexes and assessments will be completed including sexual inventories specifically designed for the evaluation of sex offenders. Contacts may be made with the client’s family, attorney, investigating office, community service officer, other therapists and/or others who may be involved and can verify a client’s personal and offense history. These evaluations can be completed at our office or while the offender is in custody.

The purpose of this evaluation is to determine:

  • The risk of recidivism
  • Treatment recommendations
  • Specific risk factors
  • Willingness to comply with treatment recommendations
  • Barriers to engagement in treatment
  • Strengths and protective factors that may mitigate risk

Family Therapy

We understand an offense is difficult for the entire family to cope with. Family therapy is offered to the family of offenders. This therapy can take place in an individual session, family session or group session.

Healthy Sexuality

This therapy takes place in an individual setting. This is designed to help those who have not been charged with an offense, but exhibit problematic sexual behaviors.

Diagnostic Assessment

A diagnostic assessment consists of an interview with the client to create a report that documents the client’s mental health functioning and needs. The report includes the client’s current mental health status, history, the nature and severity of mental illness or behavioral difficulties, functional impairment, strengths and resources. A diagnostic assessment is necessary to determine a client’s need and eligibility for mental health services.

Professional Boundary Therapy

This therapy is designed to treat professionals who have crossed a professional boundary with a client. Physicians, attorneys, therapists and other high accountability professionals are expected to maintain healthy boundaries with their clients. Boundary issues are disruptions of the expected and accepted social, physical, and psychological boundaries that separate professionals from patients or clients. The relationship between a professional and the client is established solely with the purpose of a specified service and whenever this relationship deviates from its basic goal of treatment, it is called boundary violation and becomes non-productive. Boundary violations may present as non-sexual or sexual violations. A boundary violation is harmful or potentially harmful, to the client and the relationship between client and professional. It constitutes exploitation of the client. Respect for the dignity of the client is the fundamental ethical violation in boundary problems. Clear professional boundaries create safety for both clients and professionals as well as for society. Boundaries establish clear roles for professionals and define the relationship territory; if boundaries are ignored, professionals can find themselves acting in their own best interest instead of the client’s best interest. At times professionals behave in a way that exploits the power differential in the professional/client relationship thus resulting in a boundary violation. We explore with the professional in a therapeutic environment, how the violation occurred, what factors contributed to the violation and what the necessary changes are to be made to prevent future violations. It may be that the professional has been given leave from their position to explore and modify their behavior. This therapy will document specific behavioral changes and may assist professionals in maintaining their position and privileges in their practice. In other cases, the professional has been relieved of their duties and possibly stripped of their professional license. This therapy can assist with adjusting to this change and creating a new set of career goals. The purpose of this therapy is to modify behavior, gain insight into actions and plan for the future. Pre-screening is required to rule-out active drug and alcohol addiction and physical or psychological problems that would make participation in this therapy inappropriate and unproductive. A drug screen is required prior to commencement of therapy and may be repeated during the course of treatment. Typical referral sources for this type of therapy include: Attorneys, Licensure/Regulatory Boards, Physician Health Program/EAP/Wellbeing committees, Practice Groups, Colleagues, and Family members.
