The introductory psycho-educational group was developed from my clinical work with adolescent child molesters and adult incest offenders. At the initiation of sexual offender group therapy, I found that specific forms of resistance consistently emerged which impeded the offenders’ ability to adequately make use of the group therapy process. These problems included: 1) fear of the actions being taken against them by the law enforcement and judicial systems; 2) having negative preconceived ideas about the nature of psychotherapy and their role as a client; 3) tremendous defensiveness manifested in outright denial of the offending behavior, or an individual client thinking that he’s the only one who has committed the type of offending behavior that led to his referral for treatment.
