This chapter talks about the following 'types' of sexual offenders: exhibitionists, internet offenders, child sexual abusers/child molesters, rapists, and sexual murderers. It also discusses theories of sexual abuse, and risk assessment. The exhibitionists type is classed as non-contact because offenders do not physically touch the victim but instead typically expose their genitals from a distance. Internet offenders are a relatively new type of sexual offenders who have been charged or convicted of downloading illegal sexual material from the internet. Child molesters are often classified according to their relationship with the victim: intrafamilial/ extrafamilial; and/or gender of victim they target. Ward and Hudson have distinguished three levels of theory in sexual offending as follows: Level I (comprehensive) theories, Level II (single factor) theories and Level III (process) theories. The chapter concludes with a discussion on the main strategies used in the assessment of risk and treatment needed in sexual offenders.
This paper presents evidence that on an information processing task, designed to investigate putative inhibitory mechanisms in selective attention, obsessive compulsive disordered individuals can be clearly distinguished from other anxiety disorder clients and show significantly higher scores on questionnaire measures designed to detect schizotypy in the normal population. It is suggested that these results provide some support for the idea that obsessive compulsive disorder may be misclassified as an anxiety disorder and may in fact be categorically more closely aligned to the schizophrenic constellation of disorders.
