This article describes a survey of Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) in England and Wales,
conducted during 2002–2003, which explored the extent and nature of YOT responses to
adolescents who are exhibiting sexually problematic behaviour. The methodological
approach adopted is outlined and then the main findings of the survey are discussed, with
reference to relevant literature, reports and governmental publications about adolescent
sexual aggression. The findings cover the extent of YOT involvement in this area of work;
the characteristics of the young people worked with; policies and procedures; systems for
referral, assessment and intervention and issues of concern to the respondents.
