SECTION 1905.20 DEFINITIONS
Section 1905.20 Definitions
In this Part, the terms "Board", "sex offender", "sex offense", "management", and "sexually motivated" have the meanings ascribed to them in Section 10 of the Act. In addition, the following definitions apply:
"Act": Sex Offender Management Board Act [20 ILCS 4026].
"Case management": The coordination and implementation of the cluster of activities directed toward supervising, treating and managing the behavior of individual sex offenders.
"Evaluation": The systematic collection and analysis of psychological, behavioral and social information; the process by which information is gathered, analyzed and documented.
"Informed assent": Compliance; a declaration of willingness to do something in compliance with a request; acquiescence; agreement. The use of the term "assent" rather than "consent" in this Part recognizes that sex offenders are not voluntary clients and that their choices are therefore more limited. "Informed" means that a person's assent is based on a full disclosure of the facts needed to make the decision intelligently; e.g., knowledge of risks involved, alternatives.
"Informed consent": "Consent" means voluntary agreement or approval to do something in compliance with a request. "Informed" means that a person's consent is based on a full disclosure of the facts needed to make the decision intelligently; e.g., knowledge of risks involved, alternatives.
"Parole": Parole or mandatory supervised release.
"Polygraph": The employment of instrumentation, as defined by the Illinois Detection of Deception Examiners Act [225 ILCS 430], used for the purpose of detecting deception or verifying truth of statements of a person under criminal justice supervision and/or treatment for the commission of sex offenses. A clinical polygraph examination is specifically intended to assist in the treatment and supervision of convicted sex offenders. Clinical polygraphs include specific-issue, disclosure and periodic or maintenance examinations. Clinical polygraphs may also be referred to as post-conviction polygraphs.
"Professional license": A license issued by a State governmental body to practice a particular health or mental health profession.
"Sex offense specific": Relating to the problem of sexual offense behavior.
"Supervising officer": The probation officer, parole agent or conditional release staff responsible for the behavioral monitoring of sex offenders. In addition, any person employed by the Department of Human Services (DHS) or by an entity that contracted with DHS to supervise sexually violent persons on conditional release.
"Treatment": Sexual abuser-specific treatment is designed to assist clients with effectively managing thoughts, fantasies, feelings, attitudes and behaviors associated with their potential to sexually abuse or their risk for sexual re-offense and to develop a prosocial lifestyle that is inconsistent with offending.
