Event description

Description

Instructor: Bradley Hedges, Ph.D., LPCC-S, Psychologist

CE/Us: 6 hours for Ohio Counselors, Social Workers, Psychologists

Course Description:

Professionals responsible for managing sex offenders in the community are uniquely challenged. They are not only faced with the responsibility for counseling this difficult population of offenders, but also share in the critical effort to help provide for the safety of past and potential victims. A particularly controversial issue in sex offender management and ensuring victim safety is family reunification, the process by which an offender is allowed to return to a home in which identified victims or potentially vulnerable individuals reside. Under these circumstances, the stakes are extremely high and the implications profound. It is imperative that those involved in sex offender management and therapy understand the complex issues surrounding reunification with this population.

This six hour training session has been developed for use by psychologists, therapists, and social workers who work with sex offenders or the victims of sexual abuse. It provides an introduction and overview of the dynamics and key issues warranting attention when considering reunification and preservation with sex offenders in order to establish the ultimate goal of preserving victim and public safety.
