This chapter argues that the Risk-Need-Responsivity model is applicable to this section of the population, as consideration of their risk to the community, their diverse treatment needs, and factors that affect their willingness and ability to benefit from treatment all effect their likelihood of engaging in future acts of sexual violence.
