For decades the gold standard of sex offender treatment has been a combination of relapse prevention and cognitive-behavioral therapy, however these approaches are undergoing a shift in the early 21st century (Bland, 2014). As research has highlighted the limitations of a purely risk management approach, the field has turned its attention to the benefits of humanistic and person-centered therapies resulting in the development of the Good Lives Model of Offender Rehabilitation. This change has created a renewed focus on the value of the therapeutic relationship in sex offender treatment, though most of the current research focuses on ideal counselor qualities rather than the mechanism of healing that comes from the relationship itself. This program will draw from the foundations of attachment theory to provide a framework for understanding individuals with sexually abusive behaviors and highlight why the therapeutic relationship is uniquely valuable with this population.
