Recently the first sex offender registration has been implemented in Sweden mainly through Internet websites. In response to the exceeded Internet sex offender registration, representatives of the Swedish Correctional Services gave through media the impression that the registration was counterproductive in relation to the implemented treatment program that is offered to sex offenders. In view of this, the aim of this study was to empirical examine the impact that the Internet sex offender registration might have on the implementation of the sex offender treatment program within the Swedish Correctional Services. The study was limited to an empirical study on how program leaders of the sex offender treatment program reflected and reasoned about the impact from registration on sex offenders during the implementation of the treatment program. The empirical study was based upon eight semi-structured interviews with program leaders from the sex offender treatment program within the Swedish Correctional Services. The interviews were based on the content and theoretical key concepts of the treatment program which mainly included individual risk factors, treatment progress factors and social factors associated with the reentering process into the society. In analyzing these factors Bronfenbrenner´s ecological systems theory was used in which Goffman´s stigma was included in each system level. A division between dynamic and static risk factors within the individual system level was also included. The study showed that program leaders reflected that sex offender registration on the Internet had a thorough impact on sex offenders during the implementation of treatment. A majority of the respondents stated that sex offender registration on the Internet had a negative impact on most of the theoretical key concepts of the treatment program. Nevertheless a few of these respondents also stated that some specific treatment progress factors could be positively affected and mainly referred to group dynamic factors and that the alliance between the program leader and the sex offender might be improved. Results showed that Internet sex offender registration had a larger impact on the dynamic risk factors than the static risk factors and that it increased the sex offender stigma on all levels within the Bronfenbrenner ecological systems.
