Training Description
Evidence-based practices for the assessment, management, and monitoring of adult sexual offenders are constantly evolving and improving. This ATSA Master Class will examine leading international approaches to reentry and community management, with special attention paid to methods of increasing the efficacy of such programs. In the first half, myths concerning rates of sexual offending will be refuted, and the importance of structured assessments for both evaluating risk and identifying treatment targets will be discussed. Predictors of treatment readiness, motivation to change, and quality participation will be identified, and the role of community members. In the second half, the history of sexual offender community supervision in California will be discussed as an exemplar of statewide practices. Case studies which received national attention will be highlighted, and the impact of legislation and efforts to revise state policy to concord with evidence-based best practices will be investigated. Finally, vicarious trauma and the impact of supervising sexual offender caseloads will be explored, and supervisor self-care strategies will be discussed.
