[Click to Enlarge]

If a sex offender is to be successful on supervision, it is essential that he/she cooperate with the supervision team. Some techniques for eliciting the cooperation of offenders include—

  • Being clear about expectations;
  • Being clear about the roles of all the team members;
  • Being matter of fact about the offense and the offense cycle;
  • Emphasizing the benefits of cooperation; and
  • Emphasizing the costs of failure to him as well as to the victim and the community.
