Event description

Description

This presentation will review some of the theories that attempt to explain the underlying causes of sexual assault, rape and child molestation and highlight (via video taped interviews with a variety of sex offenders) some of the more common pathways to developing deviant sexual interests and criminal sexual behavior patterns. In addition, the presenter will review various studies that examine the number of detected versus undetected offenses occurring in our communities, the degree of “cross-over” or “crime switching” behavior among sex offenders, and the difference between “re-offense” and “recidivism” rates.

Participants will also briefly examine some of the specific strategies offenders report using to target, seduce and exploit children, adults and agencies. A variety of video clips, research studies and anecdotal interview quotes will be utilized to illustrate each stage of grooming behavior. The final section will focus on some of the concerns related to our current child welfare practices and family reunification policies, risk assessment, expected treatment outcomes and long-term risk management as they relate to child safety.
