Program Description: Sexual Abuse affects a large percentage of the clients seen in the Community Mental Health system, with sexual offenders comprising approximately two percent of all people in the general community and represents a much higher number of people who present to outpatient mental health clinics. Understanding where sexually aggressive behavior comes from and understanding what to do about it is important for all mental health practitioners. This two day training provides the groundwork for understanding sexual pathology and introduces intervention strategies.
Goals: Gain a general understanding of intervention strategies, including supervision and treatment options. Appreciate the ethical concepts involved in assessment, intervention and treatment. Understand cultural implications and considerations.
Objectives: Participants will name the 4 phases of treatment and will identify the corresponding clinical tasks associated with each phase of treatment. Explain the difference between clinical and actuarial assessment. Discuss and evaluate the role of environmental control as a component of treatment/intervention. Using a case study identify criminogenic needs and cultural factors and discuss their influence on the decision to reunify.
