A research-based treatment model designed to effectively address identified factors related to juvenile sexual offending behaviors is presented. Current research, theory and national standards related to juvenile sexual offending are each explored with the treatment model reflecting an integration of these 3 components. The use of counseling skills is included throughout the model to further illustrate the application of theory and the role of the counselor in the treatment of this special population.
