How does a comprehensive, targeted educational program affect outcomes in CSEM offenders?
While most individuals who are convicted of crimes relating to possessing or distributing Child Sexual Exploitation Materials are court or probation mandated to sex offender treatment, there remains a lack of evidence-based treatment practices specifically targeting these CSEM individuals. As we know that Internet Only Child Pornography offenders are different than contact or mixed offenders, we know that treatment targets for dynamic risk factors are different as well.
