The Effects of Sex Offender Registration on Youth with Sexually Problematic Behaviors
The purpose of this proposed qualitative study is to determine the effects of sex offender registration on youth with sexually problematic behaviors and their families, using interviews with parents or guardians of youth on the sex offender registry who have received services from ABC Counseling in Normal, Illinois, to measure the effects. Participants will be invited to a semi-structured interview, which will include twelve questions asking them to rate perceived impact on their child's registration on the sex offender registry on their child using Likert scale type questions and three open-ended questions examining perceived impact of their child's registration on the sex offender registry on their family. Interviews will last approximately fifteen minutes or less and will be analyzed to identify major themes.
