How to Answer the Question

“Does Sex Offender Treatment Work?”

  1. JANICE K. MARQUES

    1. California Department of Mental Health

Abstract

Although sex offender treatment is an established clinical specialty, evidence regarding its effectiveness has been slow to accumulate. One ongoing treatment outcome study, California’s Sex offender Treatment and Evaluation Project (SOTEP), is used to highlight several problems that are inherent in this type of research, and to illustrate that even well-designed studies make only a limited contribution to our empirical database on treatment effectiveness. SOTEP findings are also used to show that the broad question, “Does sex offender treatment work?” needs to be broken down into a number of more specific and useful questions. Given the diversity of clients and programs in this field, outcome data are from a wide range of treatment programs that vary in approach, setting, intensity, and types of offenders treated. Program managers and clinicians are urged to evaluate the impact of their services in order to contribute to our knowledge base on treatment effectiveness.

RE:      Sonny Wilson – 684871

TDCJ Polunsky Unit

Dear Mr. Ferguson:

This letter is in response to your inquiry to this office dated August 6, 2015, regarding Offender Sonny Wilson. You claim retaliation by unit staff who are allegedly tampering with and holding his mail. You also mention medical/medication issues.

An investigation revealed Offender Wilson’s mail is being processed within the timeframes and guidelines in accordance with the Uniform Offender Correspondence Rules. There were no findings of retaliation by staff or mishandling of Offender Wilson’s mail.

As it is more suitable for health-related issues to be addressed by the Health Services Division, a copy of your letter has been forwarded to the Office of Professional Standards, TDCJ Health Services Division, at P. O. Box 99 in Huntsville, Texas  77342, health.services@tdcj.texas.gov, (936) 437-4271. That office will review the medical issues pertaining to Offender Wilson, obtain the necessary release of information consent from him, and respond to you directly upon completion of their inquiry.

Thank you for sharing your concerns with this office.

Sincerely,

Rosie Norman, Ombudsman I
