Treatment within a custodial setting

Many sex offenders are offered the Sex Offender Treatment Programmes which in the United Kingdom are run by the prison psychology services and are based on cognitive-behavioural principles. Considerable resources and research expertise is being devoted to the development of these services in many countries. In certain European countries other systems which combine a prison sentence with psychiatric assessment and treatment exist, for example the Terbeschikkingstelling in The Netherlands. Obviously these systems exist within their respective legislative frameworks. In the United Kingdom there is also a psychotherapeutic community within the prison service located at Grendon Underwood, and a further unit is under construction elsewhere.
