Female Sexual Offending Risk Assessment / Psychosexual Evaluation

Comprehensive assessment of an adult female’s risk to reoffend using the most current research available.

  • Clinical Interview
  • Review of the records
  • Administration and Interpretation of psychological measures (i.e., Risk for Sexual Violence Protocol, Psychopathy Checklists, Personality Assessment Inventory)
  • Physiological Assessment (when advised)
  • Collateral interviews 

Sexual risk assessment of female offenders includes the use of structured professional judgment instruments (i.e., Risk for Sexual Violence Protocol). Although actuarial measures such as the STATIC-99r are commonly used with male offenders, they are not normed on females at this time (and would grossly overestimate risk).

 

Of importance, current research has revealed a sexual recidivism rate of 1 to 2% with a 5 to 6-year follow up periods (Cannon and Cortoni, 2010). Risk estimates of female sexual offenders should be framed with this in mind.

 

Static factors (not modified through treatment) that seem to pertain to female sexual offenders include: prior criminal history, prior child abuse, and being a solo sex offending. Related dynamic factors (amenable to change) are: denial/minimization of offending, distorted cognitions, problematic relationship, intimacy deficits, use of sex to regulate emotions, presence of antisocial attitudes, and substance abuse.

  • Physiological Assessment (when advised)
  • Collateral interviews 

Sexual risk assessment of child pornography offenders includes the use of structured professional judgment instruments (i.e., Risk for Sexual Violence Protocol). Although actuarial measures such as the STATIC-99r are commonly used with sexual offenders, they are not normed on child pornography offenses at this time.
