Abstract
ABSTRACT
This article presents an abstract of the article "A prospective longitudinal study of sexual recidivism among adolescent sex offenders," by I.A. Nisbet, P.H. Wilson and S.W. Smallbone published in a 2004 issue of the journal "Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment." The aim of the study was to examine the relative rates of sexual and nonsexual recidivism in a sample of adolescent sex offenders. The degree of adult sexual offense recidivism can be predicted by variables suggested in the existing literature. There is a strong element of anti-sociality, rather than sexual deviance alone, that is associated with the sexual offending of the participants in this study.
