Karl Hanson We all want to make a difference. By addressing the problem of sexual assault, whether as therapists, researchers, policy advisors, or victim advocates, we aspire to a world where children are safe in their homes and women can walk without fear on the streets at night. But what needs to change? Potential victims can learn to better protect themselves, but any enduring solution requires changing potential offenders. We know a lot about how offence history variables are associated with the re- cidivism risk of sexual offenders (Hanson & Bussiere, ` 1998). By examining static, historical factors such as age, prior convictions, and the gender and relationships to the victims, we can reliably identify groups of sexual offenders who are at sub- stantial risk for sexual recidivism. We know much less about how to reduce that risk. Effectively treating sexual offenders require sound knowledge
