Une analyse stratégique des agressions sexuelles d’enfants commises par des adolescents : l’utilité du mode opératoire
In this study, the modus operandi of 103 adolescents involved in sexual offenses against children is analyzed. Modus operandi strategies were measured by the participants' responses to the Modus Operandi Questionnaire. Findings indicate that the degree of intrusiveness of the sexual behaviors committed by the adolescents is contingent on the participation of their victims during the sexual episodes. This study shows the relevance of analyzing adolescent modus operandi as purposeful behavior and discusses some implications of the findings for the offending process model developed by Ward and his colleagues.
