A structured method of assessing dynamic risk factors among sexual abusers with intellectual... The nature and severity of dynamic risk factors among a group of 87 adult male sexual abusers with intellectual disabilities were examined as was the psychometric properties of a new scale designed to measure these risk factors. The Treatment Intervention and Progress Scale for Sexual Abusers with Intellectual Disabilities (TIPS-ID) is composed of 25 dynamic risk factors linked to sexual reoffense. Data analyses indicate support for the item composition and reliability of the scale. Ratings from this scale differentiated participants on several clinical variables related to problem severity but not on a measure of static risk. These results are discussed in terms of their clinical and research implications. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American journal of mental retardation : AJMR Pubmed
