Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for your patience. In this particular task, you are asking for help in putting together an offender scenario. Essentially, its a kind of sample offender assessment. I suggest making it simple using this outline:
1. About the offender and other considerations - 100 words
2. Multicultural factors & treatment impact- 100 words
3. Legal & Ethical Issues - 100 words
4. Chosen treatment - 100 words
5. Treatment outcome model - 100 words

This outline should yield around 500 words which should cover what you need. The sample below has been utilized because sexual offense is among the most familiar in terms of treatment programs and in terms of offender population. You can use the listed resources to further explore the topic. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies and Happy Holidays.
