No More Sexual Violence

Sex Offender Management Standards

The 2011 Idaho Legislature tasked the SOMB with establishing standards, qualifications and certification procedures for Sexual Offender Management professionals. With the assistance of an individual who is recognized nationally in the field of sex offender management, standards and procedures were developed for post-conviction psychosexual evaluations, sexual offender treatment, the providers who conduct these services, and post-conviction sex offense-specific polygraph examiners. The SOMB's standards are consistent with the standards and guidelines of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA).

These standards are intended to be working documents, evolving accordingly with nationally recognized best practices as well as the needs of Idaho.

These psychosexual evaluation and treatment standards apply to services for adult offenders. Corresponding standards for the provision of those services to juveniles who have been adjudicated for sex offenses were developed separately.
