Abstract

Some authors have argued that group treatment is a more effective treatment modality than individual treatment. However, this may be a matter of confusing cost and time effectiveness with treatment efficacy. Further scrutiny reveals there are still unanswered questions with reference to treatment efficacy. This study examined the efficacy of the Regional Treatment Centre (Ontario) Sex Offender Program (RTCSOP) , which consisted of group plus individual therapy (i.e., full t reatment program), versus individual therapy alone (i.e., individual treatment program). The treated sample included high-risk/high-needs sex offenders. The relative efficacy of group versus individual treatment of sex offenders was assessed.
