Meta-analytic findings are clear that treatment can be effective at reducing sexual reoffending. Yet, a significant proportion of those who complete best-practice programs go on to reoffend (~11%). Not all who complete the same treatment therefore derive the same benefit! Given this, how can we know whether an individual has made relevant change in treatment? How can we know how much change they have made? And, if an individual has made change across treatment, does this mean they are less likely to reoffend?
