Diversion programs that offer community-based treatment for low-risk parent sexual offenders can reduce re-offending and heighten protection for young children and their families, a new study has found.
The study, 'Parental sexual offending: managing risk through
diversion' published recently by the Australian Institute of
Criminology, is by Professor Jane Goodman-Delahunty, a leading
researcher at the CSU Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security and the CSU School of Psychology, and doctoral candidate Ms Kate O'Brien at the School of Psychology and Psychiatry at Monash University.
