Description
Summary:This study examines the relationship between participation of sex offenders in a treatment program and their therapeutic readiness. The perspective used for this is the transtheoretical model of Prochaska and DiClemente, which structures the willingness to change behavior in four stages: pre contemplation, contemplation, action and maintenance. The evaluated sample was divided into three groups: pre-treatment, consisting of 67 untreated offenders; treatment group, made up of 33 offenders who received treatment; and follow-up group, composed of 19 sex offenders who had completed treatment. The assessment od readiness for behavior change was performed by the Stages of Change Scale (SOCS). Consistent with the transtheoretical model, the results showed a relative correspondence between the different stages of treatment and the successive stages of therapeutic change. The complexity of this field of analysis and the difficulties of obtaining clear results in the association-treatment therapeutic change are commented.
