Public concern about the threat posed by sex offenders has inspired legislation and policies designed to combat recidivism and sexual violence. The field of sex offender management and treatment has become increasingly complex in nature and continues to evolve with more emerging research and robust evidence that supports best practices. Sexual offender risk assessment has advanced greatly in the past 20 years. We now have actuarial or structured clinical instruments that help identify who we should be most concerned about regarding risk to reoffend. We know that effective community supervision and treatment of sex offenders while staying victim centered is the cornerstone of community safety and victim protection. The collaboration of treatment, supervision, law enforcement registration, and the community at large can increase the offender’s chances of a pro-social non-offending lifestyle.

Over 80% of all people under supervision in the criminal justice system have experienced trauma or show symptoms of trauma. Additionally, probation, parole and victim/survivor service providers encounter a high percentage of victim/survivors that are experiencing trauma. It is critically important for criminal justice professionals to have skills to recognize and address trauma. Without being trauma-informed, we miss a vital component of responsivity when attending to client and victim/survivor needs. During the webinar, you will learn about the foundation of trauma, the impact of trauma on the brain, and how to recognize symptoms in ourselves and others. We will also cover what it means to be trauma-informed in every interaction as well as strategies to effectively support ourselves and others through a trauma-response.
