  Boot Camp Sex Offender Treatment Program

Mission Statement: The mission of the Juvenile Sex Offender Treatment
Program (JSOTP) is to provide comprehensive assessment and treatment for
juvenile sex offenders residing at the Grayson County Boot Camp and for their
families and caregivers when possible. The ultimate goal of the program is to
prevent the recidivism of the juvenile by changing the maladaptive behaviors of
the juvenile and his family.

Eligibility: The following criteria are to be met:

       •      Age 13 –17
       •      Adjudicated on a sexual offense and/or ordered by the court to be
              detained in the boot camp
       •      Willingness of juvenile to work program while in boot camp

The youth’s juvenile probation officer will submit an intake packet for each
juvenile that will be screened for placement in the boot camp. An intake checklist
and the required documents are included with this protocol (see attachment A).
Once the intake packet has been completed and submitted to the boot camp the
juvenile will be screened for eligibility by the Deputy Director of the boot camp,
the sex offender case manager and the sex offender treatment provider.

If the youth is accepted into the JSOTP, the youth and the parent will be required
to sign a Sex Offender Treatment Contract (see attachment B). The purpose of
this document is to insure that both the juvenile and the parent understand the
treatment process and what will be required of them throughout the youth’s stay
in the boot camp.
Treatment Providers: The department contracts with three Licensed Sex
Offender Treatment Providers (LSOTP) for clients in the boot camp, on probation
and their families. The LSTOP’s are Jennifer Edwards, Bill Mory and Sue
Jennings. The therapist’s vita and license are attached (attachment C). Sue
provides post residential counseling and her vita is not included.

Program Description: The Sex Offender Treatment Program is offense specific
and designed to integrate cognitive-behavioral interventions as well as
relationship and attachment interventions. According to the Council on Sex
Offender Treatment, programs that only focus on sexual behavior problems are
of limited value and researchers have recommended a holistic approach.
Cognitive behavioral treatment strives to identify, assess and modify cognitions
that promote sexual deviance and is considered a vital component of treatment.

Cognitive behavioral interventions focus on improving the thinking and behavior
patterns of the youth. Relationship and attachment intervention is focused on
improving relationships, family functioning and expanding the youth’s capacity for
establishing healthy relationships.

The program is focused on relapse prevention with an emphasis on victim
empathy. Empathy is the “capacity to read the cues of others and thus imagine
the experience of the other” (Ryan, 1997, p. 127). In order to establish empathy
for others, it is important for the juvenile to internalize this broad concept. In the
program, the therapist will work with the juvenile from the Pathways (Kahn)
workbook, Roadmaps to Recovery workbook (Kahn) and from the Relapse
Prevention (Steen) workbook. The therapist also will seek to convey
understanding and acceptance of the youth as a worthy person who is capable of
change and is able to achieve control.

To achieve graduation the juvenile will be assessed based on their progress
through the boot camp program and their progress in the JSOTP.

The sex offender program clinicians work in partnership with the boot camp staff
to coordinate the juvenile’s stay in boot camp, with the ultimate goal being that
the juvenile not re-offend upon release.

The primary components of the program are:

       •      Group Therapy
       •      Victim Empathy
       •      Victim Protection
       •      Case Management
       •      Treatment Team Meetings
       •      Pathways Workbook
       •      Roadmaps to Recovery Workbook
       •      Individual Therapy
       •      Adjunct Therapy
       •      Polygraph Exams
       •      Parent Involvement
       •      Discharge Planning and Aftercare

Treatment Protocol: To define and re-direct an offender’s cognitive distortions,
a cognitive behavioral approach is used in both individual and group sessions.
As defined by the Council on Sex Offender Treatment, cognitive distortions are
thinking errors that promote and maintain unhealthy behavior. The Council also
notes that cognitive distortions allow offenders to justify, rationalize and minimize
the impact of their deviant behavior. Cognitive distortions allow the juvenile sex
offender to overcome prohibitions and progress from fantasy to illegal behavior.
The cognitive behavioral approach is used to assist the child in disclosure,
establishing healthy boundaries and identifying healthy sexuality.

An important component of the treatment process is victim empathy. A goal of
treatment is to assist the juvenile in learning to understand and value others.
The Council on Sex Offender Treatment states that highlighting the
consequences of victimization helps sensitize the offender to the harm he or she
has done.

The Council also notes that current knowledge of deviant sexual behavior
suggests that there is a cycle of behaviors, emotions, and cognitions that is
identifiable and which precedes deviant sexual behavior. The ability of the
juvenile to accurately identify their offense cycle is one of the goals of the

As the youth progresses in the treatment process he will establish a relapse
prevention plan. The sex offender treatment provider will assist in this process.
Each relapse prevention plan is unique to the juvenile that creates it.

At the close of treatment the youth should have a better understanding of
accountability, abuse, trauma, what healthy sexuality is and a plan in place to
prevent re-offending.

Components of Treatment

The treatment of juveniles with sexual behavior problems is effective in reducing
recidivism. In order for treatment to be effective, it shall incorporate both
cognitive/behavioral and relapse prevention approaches.

      *      Group Therapy: Each juvenile will participate in age appropriate
      group treatment two times per week. These groups are open ended and
      new juveniles are admitted to the group as they enter the Sex Offender
      Treatment Program. Group notes will be provided to the youth’s case
      manager and retained in the juvenile’s confidential file. The group has
      established rules and each youth signs a copy stating that they are aware
      of and understand those rules (see attachment D). The juvenile will
      complete assignments from the Pathways workbook and Roadmaps to
      Recovery Workbook as part of the group process. In addition, a Sexual
      Autobiography will be completed in the group setting. The Sexual
      Autobiography is used to determine if the youth has had additional victims.
      This autobiography will be completed early in treatment to assist in
      determining the need for a sexual history polygraph.

      Juveniles will use the group setting to establish their relapse cycle. The
      relapse cycle identifies a triggering event and the negative thoughts and
      negative feelings preceding an “acting out” behavior. The relapse cycle is
      then used in developing the relapse prevention plan.

•     Victim Empathy: An overarching component of the treatment
      program is Empathy Awareness and Training. Empathy is
      addressed and consistently supported in individual and group
      therapy. In individual therapy the client will begin to have an
      opportunity to experience empathy directly through the
      client/therapist relationship. This is essential for higher level
      mastery in this area. Workbook materials specifically dealing with
      aspects of empathy will be reviewed in individual therapy. In group
      therapy empathy will be addressed as an ongoing issue expressed
      through the relational dynamics between group members. There
      will be didactic as well as experiential exercises that emphasize
      victim empathy throughout the treatment experience.

•     Victim Protection: The treatment program will always work
      towards victim protection. The therapist will work to understand and
      protect the interest of victims through the review of Victim and
      Family Statements, Work with Victim Advocate Organizations,
      Development of Offender No-Contact Contracts, Development of
      written plans to limit access to victims, create an understanding of
      Victim High Risk Contact Zones, and through the monitoring of
      Post-Offense Mistreatment of Victim Contracts.

*      Case Management: Each juvenile that participates in the Sex
Offender Treatment Program will have a case manager that specializes in
working with juvenile sex offenders. The case manager is responsible for
coordinating the services provided to the youth and working with the
juvenile, parent and/or legal guardian, juvenile probation officer and
treatment team. The case manager provides case plans for juveniles on a
monthly basis in regard to their progress academically and behaviorally.

*      Treatment Team Meeting: Each juvenile will have a treatment
team that consists of the youth, the youth’s juvenile probation officer, the
youth’s case manager, the Sex Offender Treatment Provider, the parent’s
therapist and the parent or legal guardian. This team will meet on a
monthly basis to determine the progress the juvenile is making in the boot
camp program and in the Sex Offender Treatment Program. A formal
progress report will be provided by the sex offender treatment provider
and the youth’s case manager documenting his progress (see attachment

*       Individual Therapy: Each juvenile will participate in individual
treatment. The first several sessions may include the individual clinical
interview and the administration of the J-SOAP, PHASE and Abel
Cognitions Scale. This information will be used to determine the direction
of the individual treatment plan. These sessions are held two times per
month and are intended to augment the group process by providing

individualized feedback, education, assistance in establishing a relapse
prevention plan and addressing any family dynamics issues that are not
addressed in group. Individual treatment notes will be provided to the
juvenile’s case manager and retained in the youth’s confidential file. If the
Sex Offender Treatment Provider recommends additional testing, it will be
staffed and approval for the testing will be requested.

*      Adjunct Therapy
In order for treatment to be effective a multifaceted program is used
including the following:

      o   Substance Abuse Education
      o   Anger Management Classes
      o   Conflict Resolution
      o   Sex Education
      o   Life Skills Classes
      o   Trauma Resolution
      o   Values
      o   Problem Solving
      o   Impulse Control
      o   Interpersonal Communication
      o   Psychopharmacology
      o   Moral Reconation Therapy

*     Polygraph: Because secrecy and dishonesty are a major
component in sexual offending, polygraphs may be utilized. Polygraphs
will be administered on an “as needed” basis based on the
recommendation of the Sex Offender Treatment Provider.

There are four types of polygraphs that may be recommended, Instant
Offense Polygraph, Sexual History Polygraph, Monitoring Polygraph and
Maintenance Polygraph.

The Sex Offender Treatment Provider will recommend the Instant Offense
Polygraph if the juvenile denies his offense.

The Sexual History Polygraph addresses the complete sexual history of
the youth up to the instant offense.       This polygraph is typically
recommended as a part of the treatment process.

The Monitoring Polygraph, which is used to determine if the juvenile has
committed a new offense and the Maintenance Polygraph that addresses
compliance with supervision are not typically recommended.

In order to progress in treatment, residents admitted will undergo
polygraph testing. Due to polygraph age restrictions, the department will
only accept residents age 13 and older into the program.

*      Parent Involvement: In order for new habits and skills to be
reinforced it is important that parents or legal guardians be involved in the
treatment process. Parents are required to participate in the treatment
process to gain the tools necessary to supervise the juvenile. They will be
required to attend Treatment Team Meetings monthly and to work with the
boot camp staff and the Sex Offender Treatment Provider to locate
services where they can receive family counseling on a regular basis.
Unless otherwise ordered by the committing court, it is a requirement of
the JSOTP that the parent participate in treatment prior to the juvenile
being considered for release back to the home.

     The Department sponsors a Chaperon Training for Families of
Juvenile Sex Offenders. The course consists of the following modules:

      •      Characteristics of Juvenile Sex Offenders
      •      Myths of Sex Offenses
      •      Criminal Thinking Errors
      •      Victim Empathy
      •      Primary Motivations for Sexually Acting Out
      •      Concept of Learned Behavior
      •      Juvenile Recidivism Rates
      •      Offense Cycle
      •      Child Safety and Avoidance Plan
      •      Standards of Behavior for Contact with Minors and Family
      •      Holding the child responsible for his behavior

*      Disclosure of Additional Victims: Additional victims are usually
disclosed in two ways. These include self-report of the juvenile or when
confronted through polygraph. As professionals, the case manager,
therapist and polygraph examiner are required to report additional victims.
On disclosure, the case manager will also report findings to the juvenile’s
probation officer for follow-up.

*      Discharge Planning and Aftercare: When it has been determined
by the boot camp staff and the Sex Offender Treatment Provider that the
juvenile has met the following requirements for completion of the boot
camp and sex offender programs a final Treatment Team Meeting will be
scheduled to address:

             •      Completion of individual counseling
             •      Completion of group counseling
             •      Met the Boot Camp requirements for graduation
             •      Received discharge letter from therapist
             •      Parent or legal guardian has participated in therapy
             •      Parent or legal guardian has received recommendations for
                    release to the home from the parent/legal guardian’s

      This meeting will consist of the same team members as assembled in the
      monthly treatment team meetings. The juvenile’s progress will be
      reviewed in the boot camp program and in the sex offender program. The
      Sex Offender Treatment Provider will review the Relapse Prevention Plan
      and document and discuss their recommendations for the youth upon
      release from the boot camp. An exit interview will be conducted with the
      juvenile and a copy of the Aftercare Plan, including referrals for outpatient
      support, will be given to all parties present.

Unsuccessful Discharge: In the event that the juvenile does not complete either
the boot camp portion and/or the JSOTP the following documentation will be

      •      Discharge letter from the Sex Offender Treatment Provider which
             includes the specific reasons the juvenile was unsuccessfully
             discharged from the Sex Offender Treatment Program
      •      Summary of Stay from the juvenile’s case manager summarizing all
             aspects of the youth’s stay in the boot camp

Summary: The JSOTP accepts up to 18 male, court ordered offenders into its
boot camp program. Through the use of cognitive behavioral interventions, the
boot camp regime, case management and family involvement, each offender is
treated. Our goal is to assure the offender is equipped to understand his offense
as well as the feelings of his victim(s). It is our desire that the juvenile’s
treatment and stay lead to graduation; however, for our community’s safety if the
juvenile does not respond to our treatment protocol he will be recommended for
unsuccessful discharge.

     restaurant, etc.)

   ⎯ I agree to inform my therapist of the nature of any contact that I might have with

  needs, changes may be made in my treatment program. I understand that
  changes will be made for the purpose of improving my program and I agree to
  comply with any changes should they be necessary for my progress. I also
  understand as new information/research regarding the treatment of sexual
