- Individual therapy
- Therapy tailored for a client that is administered one-on-one—therapist and client.
- Play therapy
- Uses a variety of activities—such as painting, puppets and sand trays—to establish communication with the therapist and resolve problems. Play allows the child to express emotions and problems that might be too difficult to discuss verbally with another person.
- Couples/family therapy
- Both approaches involve discussions and problem-solving sessions facilitated by a therapist—sometimes with the couple, sometimes with the entire family group and sometimes with individuals. Such therapy can help couples and family members improve their understanding of, and the way they respond to, one another.
- Psychosexual evaluations
- Psychosexual/Risk Evaluations consist of various paper and pencil psychological instruments and risk measures along with a specific issue polygraph examination as well as a plethysmograph evaluation. These results can be used at all phases of the legal process as well as during participation in sex offender treatment. All of the data acquired during the evaluation is compiled into a written report released to the referring entity.
- Plethysmograph (PPG)
- Monarch-21 Plethysmograph Evaluations are a standardized, non-pornographic system designed to assess an individual’s sexual response to a variety of audio/video stimuli across gender, age, and sexual activity. In addition to assessing penile response, the system simultaneously measures a subject’s Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) and Respiration (RESP) to attempt to detect faking. Current research suggests that deviant sexual arousal is one of the two most significant predictors of sexual recidivism. Plethysmography is the only physiological measure of one’s sexual arousal patterns.
- Sex offender de-registration evaluations
- Texas Administrative Code (§810.301) Subchapter L- Early Termination of Certain Persons’ Obligation to Register has resulted in a process where individuals convicted of certain sexual offenses, can petition the Court to have their obligation to register as a sex offender removed. The criteria and process are spelled out in detail on the website for the Council on Sex Offender Treatment. Scott has been fortunate enough to be one of the 16 individuals in the State certified to complete de-registration evaluations and is happy to discuss any of your client’s particular needs as well as walk you through this process. Scott also provides expert witness testimony on all of the evaluations and treatment he performs.
