What Happens to Therapists Who Work with Sex Offenders?
Farrenkopf, Toni
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v18 n3-4 p217-23 1992
Surveyed 24 experienced therapists working with sex offenders regarding personal impact of work. Most reported shift in perspective, becoming discouraged about client change. Several adjustment phases were reported. One-quarter experienced burnout. Alternative to burnout was adaptation: lowering of expectations, objective detachment, acceptance of human dark side. Other coping strategies included work diversification and increased support systems. (Author/NB)
