This paper reports on the process of helping offenders, and those at risk of offending, with mild learning disabilities, understand their steps to offending. The four-stage model of sexual offending provides a framework to enable participants and facilitators to understand the individuals' offending, in particular the steps or stages that lead to it. This is one of the modules in a nationally provided group-based treatment programme. Four men completed the local programme and their progress during this module is reported. A number of themes arising from the work the men did in this module are also discussed.
