Family involvement in the treatment process is strongly encouraged. The program aims at helping children and adolescents and their families identify their strengths and resolve problems or concerns that may have contributed to the offense.  The child or adolescent explores their offense(s) and identify their individual cycle of abuse (i.e., the thoughts, feelings, conditions that precede and follow their offenses(s).  They also explore how they have denied and minimized the significance of their behavior.  They learn the effects of sexual offenses on the victims and some learn how to deal with their own abuse.
