Clackamas Adolescent Sexual Offender Intervention.
King, Richard B.
The Clackamas Adolescent Sexual Offender Intervention program is designed to interrupt and change behavior of clients who are juvenile sexual offenders at risk to re-offend. Intervention is scheduled for each offender over a 52-week period with groups meeting each week for 2 hours, and an all day session each 6-week period on Saturday. The adolescent sexual offender cycles through 10 systematic modules that are structured in 4- to 5-week sections. Modules include: (1) Orientation; (2) Deviant Thinking; (3) Victim Personalization; (4) Sexuality Education; (5) Offender Responsibility; (6) Social Skills; (7) Values Exploration and Clarification; (8) Fantasy Exploration; (9) Anxiety/Stress Management; and (10) Drug/Alcohol Abuse Management. Intervention is geared toward helping the juvenile offender with the following characteristics: poor social skills; low self-esteem; sexual behavior effected through manipulation, enticement, entrapment, or force; adolescent and parent/guardian/family denial, minimization, and rationalization; lack of responsibility for the offense; and lack of sexual knowledge and experience. This report describes the program; explains the referral process, evaluation methods, and assessment instruments; lists program goals and approaches; briefly describes each of the 10 modules; and gives graduation objectives. A 29-page list of definitions is included; program forms are appended. (Author/NB)
