The Basics of Sex Offender Treatment

The therapeutic treatment of sex offenders has advanced rapidly as clinicians adopt a strength based approach and research studies provide more insight into the etiology of sexual deviance. As a result, treatment programs based on the Good Lives Model framework have replaced the older, punitive treatment models. This workshop is an introduction to sex offender specific treatment and will provide social workers with a basic understanding of clinical work with the sex offender population.
