The Classification of Rapists and Child Molesters.
Overholser, James C.; Beck, Steven J.
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services and Rehabilitation, v13 n1 p15-25 1988
Attempted to classify convicted rapists, child molesters, and three different control groups, based on information from various assessment sources. Results indicated that behavioral measures combined with life history data could accurately classify subjects well above chance rates. Fairly accurate classification was obtained for three of five groups, with some difficulties differentiating rapists from non-sex offender inmates. (Author/NB)
