Pope, Gregory A.; Reddon, John R.; Payne, Lloyd R.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v25 n1-2 p175-82 1997
Assessed 50 male sex offenders' (enrolled in an inpatient group psychotherapy program) attitudes toward their parents. Results show attitude-toward-father scores improved significantly but attitude-toward-mother scores did not. Findings are attributed to treatment climate characteristics, greater identification with the father, and a general nonandrogenous orientation. (RJM)
