Using the Association for the Treat- ment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) as a forum, six different research groups have, in the past year, presented articles or presentations on The Abel Assessment for TM sexual interest that have come to opposite conclusions. In a 1998 article published in Sexual Abuse, (Abel, Huffman, Warberg, & Holland, 1998) the research demonstrated the utility of visual reaction time in assessing child molesters. At ATSA’s 18th Annual Research and Treatment Con- ference held in 1999, four independent research groups (Gray, 1999; Letourneau, 1999; Listiak & Johnson, 1999; Seghorn & Wiegel, 1999) presented studies based on data sets from different parts of the country; two from community popula- tions and two from incarcerated populations that confirmed this utility.
