Cognitive distortions in sexual aggressors against children: An examination of the Abel and Becker Cognition Scale (ABCS)

Abstract : Cognitive distortions are generally considered a key factor in the evaluation and treatment of sexual aggressors against children. The aim of this study was to examine the discriminant properties of the Abel and Becker Cognition Scale. The results of analyses of covariance, in a sample of 265 aggressors against children, do not support ABCS's discriminating properties. Limits and implications for future researches are discussed.
