This paper explains that the author proposes to design an inpatient adolescent sexual offender treatment program where treatment groups are separated according to their respective personality types, as measured by the Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory (MACI). The paper stresses that the purpose of such a program would be to reduce the recidivism rates of juvenile sexual offenders and decrease their probability of becoming adult offenders. The findings of the presented literature review indicate that specific factors used in assessment, including biopsychosocial and biological with mediating and causal influences, can be linked to rates of recidivism among adolescent sexual abusers, thereby, supporting the proposed treatment program.

From the Paper:

"Stated as the ninth misconception is that ASOs have other serious disorders of a psychological nature however the opposite is true because the majority of ASOs do not have serious large psychological problems but of those that do have serious psychological problems experience depression, learning disabilities, and conduct disorders, all of which should be addressed at the time of treatment. The tenth stated misconception is that ASOs should not attend public schools however, many of the ASOs are able to attend public schools and participate in then normal activities of adolescents."
