  • Therapists Specialize in Treating Sex Offenders

    Certified sex offender therapists provide services for the treatment and rehabilitation of sex offenders. There are two certification levels of therapists:

    Clinical sex offender therapists must have a minimum of a master's degree in the behavioral sciences and an active Oregon mental health professional license.

    Associate sex offender therapists must have a minimum of a bachelor's degree in the behavioral sciences and be under the direct supervision of a clinical sex offender therapist to be certified in Oregon.

    Only state-certified professionals may represent themselves as a certified clinical sex offender therapist or certified associate sex offender therapist.

  • Therapists Must Follow Standards for Adult, Juvenile and Developmentally Disabled Clients

    The Sex Offender Treatment Board has developed and adopted individual treatment standards for three distinct client groups: Adult sex offenders, juvenile sex offenders and developmentally disabled sex offenders. 

    These standards provide certified sex offender therapists with specific practice guidelines and requirements of professional responsibility. Certified sex offender therapists must adhere to these standards in their practice, or face disciplinary action.

  • Questions about Supervision? Board Fact Sheet Provides Answers
