Motivational Counseling: Implications for Counseling Male Juvenile Sex Offenders
Patel, Samir H.; Lambie, Glenn W.; Glover, Michelle Muenzenmeyer
Journal of Addictions & Offender Counseling, v28 n2 p86-100 Apr 2008
Juvenile sex offenders (JSOs) often appear unmotivated to change, which thus necessitates a therapeutic approach that matches "resistant" client characteristics. In this article, the authors review common traits of JSOs, introduce motivational counseling as an effective treatment modality, and offer a case illustration. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
