Abstract

Studies were conducted on the reliability and discriminative utility of the Adolescent Cognitions Scale for juvenile sexual offenders. Results indicate that the scale had only marginal reliability from test to retest conditions, and did not discriminate between groups of juvenile sexual offenders and youth without a history of sexual perpetration. The authors offer hypotheses for the obtained results, and suggest avenues for further research concerning the development of this instrument.
