The assessment and treatment of persons who sexually abuse present challenges unique to this population. Perhaps more difficult is the effective communication of the results of such assessments and treatment plans via professional reports. Preventing misunderstanding, grievances, and long days of cross-examination require excellent report writing skills. Participants in this On Demand workshop will learn how best to communicate key areas of interest to sex offender evaluators and treatment providers, helpful strategies for improving the meaningfulness of their reports for the intended reviewer, and how to avoid common errors in report writing. Case studies will be used throughout the workshop to model best practices in report writing. This course is designed by practitioners for practitioners and covers topics ranging from the level of detail involved in forensic reports to addressing sensitive areas in a way that keeps reports more probative than prejudicial. More cost-effective and time-efficient than attending an in-person workshop but covering the same content, this innovative on demand training is the first-of-its-kind.
