Sexual Adjustment Inventory
The Sexual Adjustment Inventory (SAI) identifies sexual deviance and paraphilias in people accused or convicted of sex offenses. The SAI is an evidence based assessment instrument or test with impressive reliability, validity and accuracy.
Unique SAI features include two Truthfulness Scales: one to determine if the client (patient or offender) lied when answering sex-related questions, and the other to decide if the client minimized problems or lied when answering non-sex-related questions. It is very important for evaluators, judges, probation officers, treatment staff and others to know if the test results are accurate. The SAI is the only sex offender test that has these two Truthfulness Scales.
Why have 13 scales? Reasons for inclusion of the 6 sex-related scales are obvious. Yet, inclusion of the 7 non-sex-related scales may not be that obvious. Each of the 7 non-sex-related scales represent problems and disorders that have been linked to sexual problems. These 7 scales, or the areas of inquiry they represent, can provide considerable sex offender insight. And many people accused or convicted of sex offenses attempt to mask, cloak or conceal these problems.
The Sexual Adjustment Inventory (SAI) is a 225 item self-report test that takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete. The SAI can be administered in two different ways: 1.
On Windows diskettes or USB flash drives (www.bdsltd.com
), or 2.
online or over the internet (www.online-testing.com
). Test booklets are provided free to Windows users, or they can be printed (downloaded and photocopied) on our Online testing platform. More Sexual Adjustment Inventory (SAI) information is available on the two websites referenced above.
