Psychosexual evaluations include sexual abuser–specific assessments and promote informed decision making among those who share responsibility for treatment, risk management, and other domains of intervention. Empirically–informed and reliable sexual abuser–specific assessments can be used, for example, to inform:
- Sentencing and other legal decisions.
- Treatment planning and progress.
- Release decision making.
- Transition and reentry planning; and
- Supervision and other case management planning.
Psychosexual assessments are most reliable and beneficial when evaluators adhere to ethical practices, incorporate multiple sources of information, use research–supported
methodologies, and strive to engage clients in the assessment process. Furthermore, such assessments are most effective for guiding decision making, maximizing public safety, and promoting successful client outcomes.
