In this chapter, Paul Lundrigan discusses various elements or components that can make up a comprehensive treatment program for adolescents who sexually offend. To detail this, he begins with an explanation of what sex offense-specific treatment is and is not. Next he identifies modalities for delivery of treatment. These may include a uni-modal method of treatment (a single, sex-offense-specific clinical intervention) or a multi-modal method (several different sex-offense-specific treatment interventions at the same time). This leads to discussion of the multi-component model of treatment, components that can be included, and integration of the components.
