Collaborative Multidisciplinary Teams and Polygraphs: One Protocol for Increasing Rehabilitative Integrity
Author: HEATHER ELLIOTT AND MARK L. MCCONKIE
Published in PAM, Vol. 7 No. 4
This study compares the disclosure performance of sex offenders
under two polygraph modalities: first, the traditional single examiner
mode, and second the collaborative multidisciplinary team approach. Its
asks whether under the team approach offender disclosure rates increase,
thus enabling rehabilitative processes to operate more effectively and at the
same time offer assurance of increased community protection. The findings
suggest offenders are more disclosing on significant items under the
collaborative team approach, and the experience and manifest higher levels
of integrity, which in and of itself is therapeutic.
