I think a member of my family is a child sex offender. How do I approch the parents with this information? I have 4 children of my own, 2 girls 12 and 13, I've talked with them, but I need to know if the best thing to do is not allow him to my home, or my children to his home?

Psychiatrists Yochelson and Samenow worked with career criminals in a correctional program over several decades to teach them about empathy and why it’s important to individuals in society who want to regain control over their own lives and achieved marked reductions in recidivism. The training to carry out such treatment is specialized and advanced. But the investment in rehabilitation may be cost effective when the prevention of harm to people and society is considered.

Their work dovetailed with the findings that abuse and neglect result in people failing to learn socially acceptable ways of behaving toward others. Prevention of abuse and neglect of children must be given more effort by our communities to reduce the number of violently misbehaving offenders preying on us and our families and neighbors before they have escalated to serious crimes.

is there any research being done in the area of prevenion of adults who are at risk of offending. what are the tell-tail signs ?
