Management of Those with Problematic Sexual Behaviors in a Digital World
Thursday 9:00m – 12:30pm EST VIRTUAL ONLY – 3 CEU Awarded
Cell phones, tablets, gaming systems, and social media have created a new challenge for the management of offenders with problematic sexual behaviors in the community. These devices can give those individuals unfettered access to victims, pornography, as well as a host of other materials that could trigger a relapse. During the workshop, participants will be introduced to research on why they offended; risk assessment, including static and dynamic risk factors; best practices for the management of individuals with these devices; and interventions and techniques that can aid in the supervision and treatment of this population. This workshop will also highlight the importance of the relationship between the Officer, Treatment Provider, and Offender and how each role is pivotal in preventing future victimization.
