ABSTRACT
The great majority of convicted sexual offenders will eventually be managed in the community. To date, many jurisdictions have attempted to apply a one-size-fits-all model using a specific treatment program, medication, or a containment approach. These programs have a number of drawbacks and are not well supported by research literature. An alternate way of approaching risk management of sexual offenders that has greater empirical support is proposed. This model relies upon a concentration of attention on the highest risk offenders, individualizing intervention strategies based on identified risk factors, and assessing for psychopathy as part of the planning process.
