Summary This thesis compares the cognitive distortions of adolescent sexual offenders, violent offenders and non-offenders. Sexual offenders demonstrated the most distorted thinking patterns, and were the most likely to exhibit a self-centred tendency and to blame others. These findings have numerous implications for the prevention and treatment of sexual offending by adolescents.
