Abstract

This study offers empirical evidence for the efficacy of the therapeutic treatment of juveniles with sexual behavior problems in secure-care facilities using the Louisiana Sex Offender Treatment Program (LSOTP), an integrated cognitive behavioral theory (CBT) approach. A quasiexperimental pre-test, post-test research design was implemented to examine the impact of LSOTP services among 33 adjudicated, male juveniles with sexual behavior problems in two secure-care facilities. All participants received LSOTP services and were measured for changes in depression, anxiety, and cognitive distortions (rape and molest) from Time 1 to Time 2. Results indicated that participants experienced (1) statistically significant reductions in anxiety level, and (2) measurably greater reductions in rape-related cognitive distortions. The LSOTP model of treatment used across Louisiana is related to psychosocial benefits. Recommendations are provided.
