offender treatment methodology written exercise 2

Your Written Exercise is to type a response to the scenario presented on page 31 in your textbook.

Imagine you are a probation officer with a specialized caseload of 60 sexual offenders. Two of your cases worry you. Yesterday, a 50-year-old repeat child molester began talking openly about his sexual attraction to a particular boy. Today, you learn that a 22-year-old date rapist was evicted from treatment for denying he had done anything wrong. You have the opportunity to make one more home visit this week. Which one would you choose?”

Your response must be specific based on risk assessment data presented from all your assigned reading and you must include facts and information regarding the risk assessment tools to support your stated beliefs. Also include in your response how the Saint Leo core value of excellence applies to probation officers working with sex offenders.
