Sexual Abuser Recovery Program & Psychosexual Evaluation

Sexual Abuser Recovery Program

Treatment is focused on providing individual and family services in the home and community for those individuals not requiring residential placement (treatment center or correctional facility). Program incorporates individual counseling by a provider authorized by the Virginia Board of Psychology to provide sexual offender treatment as well as home-based family counseling services to address individual and family issues (similar to Intensive In-Home Services). Home-based family services coordinate with individual treatment to ensure safety of family and community, assure no future events of sexually harmful behavior and treat the underlying trauma, emotional dysregulation and behaviors of the youth causing sexual harm. Peer group sessions may include psychoeducation regarding sexual health, communication skill building, decision making and problem solving (based on location, accessibility and demand). Individuals need not be adjudicated to receive and benefit from services.

Psychosexual Evaluation

Comprehensive assessments will utilize dynamic, static and actuarial scales to assess risk factors, psychosocial history, protective factors and offense history. Issues evaluated include, but are not limited to, the offense cycle, history of offending, motivation, denial system, degree of anger/passivity, capacity for empathy, power and control. Evidence-supported testing measures may include the Juvenile Sex Offender Assessment Protocol-II (J-SOAP-II), Estimate of Risk of Adolescent Sexual Offense Recidivism (ERASOR II), Juvenile Sexual Offense Recidivism Risk Assessment Tool-II (JSORRAT-II), Static-99R, as well as other inventories and assessment measures. Recommendation will be made following evaluation regarding safety risks and suggested level of treatment.
