Training Description
The Good Lives Model (GLM) has become a popular theoretical framework informing sexual offending treatment; however, substantial variation has been observed in its practical application. This 1.5-hour workshop provides an updated overview of the GLM, incorporating recent conceptual and practice-related developments and explores its use with people for whom Spanish is their primary language. This workshop will emphasize audience participation and presentation of case examples. Key assessment, engagement and treatment strategies will be illustrated. It considers cultural considerations in application and reviews the lessons learned in the process of its translation into Spanish. The GLM offers potential for improving outcomes of treatment programs that follow a cognitive-behavioral approach and that operate according to the Risk, Need, and Responsivity (RNR) principles. However, misguided or otherwise poor application of the GLM could increase the very risk treatment is designed to prevent and manage.
