SEX OFFENDER COUNSELING

TREATMENT

It is important to note that underlying this treatment program are several concepts and ideas that preclude the acceptance of any deterministic theories of behavior and personality.

A.                Methods of treatment are designed around Cognitive/Behavioral theory and the philosophy of Personal Responsibility.  Taking responsibility for one’s own decision and consequences is absolutely essential to progressing through treatment.  Also included is cognitive restructuring, relapse prevention, theories of addiction, and techniques of Reality Therapy.

B.                 Treatment is presented in three (3) Phases designed to show progress and allow each Sex Offender to calculate at any given time his/her expected completion date.

1.      Phase 1 consists of ten (10) units of written work, and requires approximately 106 clock hours to complete.  At this point, the Sex Offender is required to attend treatment weekly.  As a guide, the Sex Offender is allowed one (1) calendar year from his date of entry into treatment to complete Phase 1 requirements.  If he/she is not able to complete the work required in a calendar year, the Supervision Officer will follow-up and take appropriate action. 

Should there be legitimate extenuating or unavoidable negative circumstances whereby the Sex Offender is absolutely unable to complete the work within the prescribed year; appropriate allowances can be made as necessary.    

2.      Phase 2 consists of approximately 50 clock hours of group process.  The Sex Offender is required to attend weekly until he accumulates these hours, at which time he will progress to Phase 3.

3.      Phase 3 consists of approximately 24 clock hours of group process.  The Sex Offender is required to attend treatment every other meeting until he/she accumulates the required number of hours and satisfied all treatment goals at which time he/she will have completed the Sex Offender Treatment.

C.                 Sex Offenders who have successfully completed all Phases will be automatically enrolled in Phase 4 aftercare.  Participate in groups and maintenance screening of Sex Offenders in Phase 4 will be at the discretion of the Staff Therapist.  Completion of clock hours and work assignment in each phase does not automatically constitute advancement to the next phase.  The Staff Therapist reserves the right to hold and/or amend participation in any phase.

 

D.                The Sex Offenders are encouraged to raise and process personal issues as necessary. They are to report to the group any deviant impulses they’ve experienced, and any high-risk situations they may have experienced.  They are to inform the group how they conducted their behavior to avoid reoffending.  Transfer-In Sex Offenders, who have completed treatment or have been court ordered, will be enrolled in this Phase.
