We are still learning about those who sexually abuse. We are also continuing to learn about the most effective ways to assess, treat, and manage those who sexually abuse. The vast majority of sex offenders return to our communities. Even though there is no single way to completely eliminate the risk of sexual re-offense, a comprehensive and collaborative approach to sex offender management can go a long way to manage offenders' behaviors and ensure their safe integration within communities. This special collection provides resources that address the topics of sex offender risk, assessment, management, treatment, and supervision. In addition, there is a special focus on the policies that have been created in the past decade to help keep our communities safer.
This collection was developed by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. All resources are available online in full text. This is not an exhaustive list of all resources available. Additional resources including book titles, articles, reports, and journals can be found by browsing the library at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center or sending information requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
