Sexual Behavior Disorders in Adolescents.
Erickson, William D.
The paper reviews the literature on sexual delinquency in male and female adolescents and considers guidelines for effective intervention in nonspecialized treatment programs. A section on sexual delinquency in females touches on prostitution and incest, while a section on males notes the changing composition of the sexually delinquent population. A study of 40 male teenagers referred because of sexual misdeeds examined histories and data from intelligence and psychological testing. A strong association was found between sexual assaults on adults or older teenage girls and other serious antisocial behavior. Important programming components cited include sex education and instruction in interpersonal responsibility and respect for others. (CL)
