This study investigated the efficacy of using the Parent Rating and Self-Report composite measures of the Behavior Assessment System for Children (BASC) to differentiate male juvenile sex offenders from non-sexually offending male delinquent youth along various personality traits and behavioral characteristics. Subjects included sixty-four offending and seventy-seven non-sex offending conduct-disordered adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17, and sixty-live parents of the sex offending adolescents and eighty parents of the non-sex offending adolescents. While significant differences were found between the two groups of youths in the School Maladjustment composite, with juvenile sex offenders reporting less school-related issues than their non-sex offending delinquent peers, the extent of the school-related difficulties indicated by both groups were not clinically significant. Significant differences were found between both groups of parents in the Externalizing Problems composite, with the parents of juvenile sex offenders reporting lower rates of behavior problems. Overall, results showed both groups of adolescents appeared more similar than dissimilar in self-reports and parent ratings. Yet, while neither group of adolescents indicated any clinical difficulties, parents of both groups of juveniles reported more clinically significant symptomatology than was evident from the adolescent self-reports. It was concluded that the BASC appears to have limited utility in differentiating between sex offending and non-sex offending delinquent youth, and the Self-Report composite measures alone may be insufficient for identifying symptomatology in these youth. The BASC Parent Rating composite measures, though, seem to provide more accurate and reliable information about adolescent behavioral concerns. This discrepancy between adolescent self-reports and parent ratings has various implications for juvenile sex offender assessment. In addition, information provided by the BASC Parent Rating composite measures offers several clinical benefits when working with juvenile sex offenders, specifically in terms of treatment planning, prognosis, and monitoring the progress of these adolescents during treatment.

Whilst there is considerable literature on rape from various perspectives, there is very little that focuses on rape committed by multiple perpetrators (also referred to as group or gang rape). For the first time, this handbook brings together international multi-disciplinary perspectives on multiple perpetrator rape. The book is organised to provide readers with a comprehensive account of the thinking, theorising and empirical evidence on multiple perpetrator rape to date. Aspects covered include: different contexts in which multiple perpetrator rape occurs such as gangs, war, fraternities, South Africa; experiences of women and girls as victims and perpetrators; offence characteristics such as leadership and role taking, aggression and violence; the importance of group size; the prosecution of and treatment of offenders; and approaches to prevention. The contributions to this collection are written by leading academics and practitioners from a variety of disciplines who bring together research and practice on multiple perpetrator rape by presenting new data from a strong theoretical and contextual base. This book will be a key text for students and academics studying multiple perpetrator rape and an essential reference tool for professionals working in the field including police officers, educationalists, forensic psychologists, youth workers, probation staff, lawyers, judges and policy makers.
