Parental sexual offending – new study

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.
