ABSTRACT
This paper examines the impact that five selected risk factors have on the treatment outcome of adolescent male sex offenders. The results indicate that the greatest risk factor among sex offenders is having a mother who has a substance abuse problem. It is noted that by identifying the sex offenders' risk factors, treatment facilities can provide therapy that results in a positive and lasting therapeutic outcome because the entire problem is addressed and treated rather than just the sex offending behavior.
