The article focuses on the effectiveness and other issues on residential placement and reintegration of young men who committed sexual abuse in New Zealand. It says that alternative residential placements such as foster care and family or group homes are ideal during the treatment over community-based treatment despite the lower recidivism rate of the latter. It also cites the criteria used for clinical assessments of such youth for out-of-home placement. Youth who are over 17 years old are transferred to doss houses with little or no support.
