Problem Solving Treatment for Intellectually Disabled Sex Offenders
Nezu, Christine Maguth; Fiore, Alicia A.; Nezu, Arthur M.
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v2 n2 p266-276 2006
Over the past thirty years, Problem Solving Therapy (PST) has been shown to be an effective treatment for many different problems and patient populations (Nezu, 2004). Among its many clinical applications, PST interventions were developed for persons with intellectually disabilities (ID), where improving problem-solving skills led to adaptive behavioral improvements (Nezu, Nezu, & Arean 1991). This article provides a rationale and description of the potential benefits of including PST as a treatment for ID sex offenders. Recommendations regarding future research directions are offered.
