ABSTRACT This article examines techniques to engage and treat mandated juvenile sex offenders. From the referral on, the clinician needs to orchestrate treatment maneuvers which help facilitate a working relationship with the adolescent along with the other "clients" in the system, i.e., the family, the referent, probation and/or child protective services and society at large. A discussion of how the client can be encouraged to define his/her issues in therapy is provided, along with an examination of practical concerns pertinent to treating this type of client. The paper concludes with the issue of reintegrating the adolescent into society safely.
