Pornography use amongst those who have engaged in sexually abusive behaviors presents unique challenges for supervision and treatment. This comprehensive and interactive training will focus on three key areas in the consideration of the potential role of pornography in the supervision and treatment of those who have sexually offended. We will review the history of pornography, types and genres of pornography, and the social, moral, and legal reactions to varying forms of sexually explicit materials. We then examine the empirical research on the role of pornography in the commission of sexual offenses as well as the risk factors associated with recidivism. We discuss the treatment and policy implications of both the historical and empirical data and what this means for supervision practices.
