SOCL 304 The Sexual Offender
No Criminal offender currently receives more media attention or is more reviled and ostracized than the sexual offender. Over the last twenty years, considerable resources have been allocated toward the adjudication, incapacitation, and rehabilitation of this population. This course will examine historical perspectives on sexual behavior, the etiology of sexually deviant behavior, offender typologies, paraphilias and other sexual disorders, the cycle of sexual offending, juvenile and female offenders, risk assessment schemas, current treatment methodologies, and gradations of incapacitation, including trends in adjudications, community management, and supervision.
