There are a variety of programs, which when properly targeted, administered, and well-implemented, can actually reduce recidivism and enhance the public safety at large. The author will focus one of those programs that is widely identifiable in correctional facilities across the country as an effective measure in the reduction of recidivism. Female sexual offender treatment, programs for juvenile offenders (family-based programs). In addition to the implementation, risk-focused prevention programs will be identified by employing various tactics and strategies to reduce the influence of risk factors that are associated with criminal conduct. The primary emphasis of these at risk-focused youth prevention programs will be to deliver the message and expose the at risk persons to the programs early in life before law-breaking behavior begins. The author of this paper will discuss the attachment model of intimacy deficits in sexual offenders by drawing upon the interface between the attachment of the media outlets, literature, and social sites, and cognition research. This essay will also briefly discuss the comprehensive model of intimacy deficit disorders and the affect they have in relation to the sexual offender.

Whereas female offenders who did not engage in a relationship of any sort prior to offending tended to be younger, and their their initial sexual offenses occurred under more diverse circumstances.
