The vast majority of attention on sex abuse crimes focuses on male offenders, although in recent years there has been an increased awareness that females also can be sex offenders. Highly publicized cases involving illegal sexual contact between female high school teachers and their male students are a primary source of this growing attention. These cases tend to misrepresent the full nature or scope of sexual abuse committed by females. Myths and misconceptions about the broader issue of female-perpetrated sex crimes will be discussed, along with treatment models for social work practice. Class size is limited to 50.
