|There are many key research findings that people who work with sexual abuse victims may be unaware of due to busyness and a lack of reading about offenders. Most will know a few of these facts, but for example the 60% decline in sexual abuse over the past 20 years is fascinating as are the very low recidivism rates after treatment and the statistical effect size of treatment, relationships between offenders and victims, pornography research, risk factors for reoffense, trauma research and some of the actual stories of offenders understandings what they did and why they did it. In this talk disguised clinical stories of offenders will be shared from Dr. Burton book in progress, as well as research on the areas above resulting in a renewed and useful tool kit for anyone working with sexual assault survivors.
