Around half of sexual offenders in prison and community settings refuse to participate in sex offender treatment programmes; however the reasons for this remain largely unexplored. This pilot study used the previously untested Treatment Refusal Scale – Sexual Offender Version (Marshall, Mann & Webster, 2009) in an English prison, with 72 adult males (63 treatment accepters and 9 treatment refusers) imprisoned for sexual or sexually motivated offences.
