In particular, he criticized the use of thinking errors, which is a form of cognitive distortion. He states the following: “Perhaps cognitive therapy yields misnomers because it deals so much with words, a term often causing shudders in thinking errors? A sexual offender may or may not justify his deviant actions after the fact, if anyone asks::: Do we really know the processes, if any, of thought before each crime? Does the offender? Are they the same each time? If they are, why are they errors, because they are not true or because we do not like them?::: Offenders simply act and do not think.” He goes on to discuss implications of the arrogance and superiority among treatment professionals, as if they know the “truth.”
