Treatment Programs offered by Alan Kaine and Associates:
We offer brief or solution-focused treatment for clients with sexual disorders who are not mandated and/or have no criminal charges.
Managing Risk & Rehabilitation
Individual and group therapy for clients who have been arrested or convicted or sentenced. Specialized treatment focuses on managing risk. The design of this service will be keeping with evidence-based research findings which is focused on risk, need and responsivity (RNR) which is widely regarded as the premier model for guiding assessment and treatment. The treatment program will be based on relapse prevention, self-regulation and Good Lives Models using a cognitive-behavioural approach.
Aftercare Group Therapy
We offer an aftercare/support group for adult males who acknowledge a sexual disorder and have completed a sexual treatment program. Before you can participate in group therapy, the client will have to be assessed for suitability. The group offers a safe, confidential and judgment-free place to discuss problems that are arising in their lives (not exclusive to sexual issues).
We offer individual treatment program for clients who have been arrested and/or convicted for domestic violence. The design of this service will be keeping with evidence-based research findings for domestic violence offenders. The present program goals for domestic offenders will incorporate the principles of risk, need and responsivity (RNR).
The treatment program for this population will be based on self-regulation and relapse prevention models. The treatment delivered will be based on social learning theory, feminist theory and anti-oppression theory and it will be delivered using a cognitive behavioural framework. The primary goal of intervention is for clients to cease coercive, violent, controlling, and abusive behaviours.

Phallometric or Sexual Preference Testing
There are various psychophysiological assessments (phallometry, viewing time, polygraph) that are commonly used in corroborating client self-report and/or monitoring treatment compliance and progress. Generally, phallometry is recognized as one of the best objective quantifiable measure of male sexual arousal.
In compliance with the ethical standards by The Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA), I need to have informed consent from clients before using psychophysiological assessments. The result of the psychophysiological assessment is not to be used as the sole criterion for estimating client risk of engaging in sexually abusive behaviour, making a recommendation to release or not release clients to the community or deciding that clients have completed a treatment program. Those who conduct psychophysiological assessments need to be trained and certified for assessment/treatment purposes and adhere to the applicable standards or guidelines of their profession.
Sexual arousal patterns are measured using the PrefTest Professional Suite by Limestone Technologies. The plethysmograph component records changes of penile circumference (diameter) by using a mercury-in-rubber gauge, which is attached to the shaft of the penis. There are other components that are used for countermeasure detection. There are two types of phallometric tests: Object Preference and Activity Preference Testing.
Types of Polygraphic Examinations:
- Event Specific Issue Examination: is an examination regarding a specific behaviour; allegation or event. This examination is generally implemented at the onset of, during, or at the end of the treatment process.
- Sexual History Examination: is a thorough examination of a client’s sexual history. The polygraph examination is usually included as a part of a comprehensive psychosexual evaluation.
- Maintenance/Monitoring Examination: The maintenance examination can be used to help client’s maintain treatment compliance, sexual disclosures, infidelity, etc.
