New report on sex offender policy to prevent child sexual abuse

The Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA), with support from the Ms. Foundation, has released a new report titled A Reasoned Approach: Reshaping Sex Offender Policy to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse.  In the executive summary authors Joan Tabachnick and Alisa Klein note the increasing number of policies passed by legislators about sexual abused. They state that “research from the last decade has highlighted some of the unintended negative impacts these laws may be having on our ability to prevent sexual abuse before it is perpetrated and to prevent re-offense by individuals returning to communities.”
