Training Description
Community reintegration can be considered an essential element of the collaborative efforts of sexually abusive youth, families, communities, the justice system, and society at large. This ATSA Master Class presents content relevant to adolescents being paroled or stepping-down from youth corrections facilities as well as youth under the jurisdiction of probation and/or human services who are transitioning from residential programs into the community. The focus on both policy and practice application makes this training beneficial for the continuum of professionals associated with the assessment, residential placement, transition, aftercare, schools, and community supervision of sexually abusive youth as well as for policymakers and administrators. An evidence-based framework is presented with the guiding principle of minimizing sexual recidivism risk while maximizing a youth’s potential for prosocial development in the community, and the importance of multidisciplinary teams in the linking of mental health and criminal justice systems is discussed. Relevant research is then presented on recidivism rates for sexual and non-sexual delinquency, empirically-supported dynamic risk factors for recidivism, and typologies. Finally, best practice policies, procedures, and practices for supervision officers are discussed in detail.
