Polygraphs have been widely used in the treatment and supervision of sex offenders since the 1980’s. Over the last five years, the polygraph has been met with criticism and several programs are questioning its utility in sex offender management.

At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to:

  • List the primary arguments against the use of the polygraph and identify strategies to minimize or eliminate the negative impact.
  • Explain how the polygraph can be incorporated into and enhance the Comprehensive Approach to Sex Offender Management Model.
