Event description

Description

99,609 sexual offences were reported last year, the highest since national records began in 2002. There has been a 60% increase in reported child sexual abuse in the last 5 years. People convicted of sexual offences are living in, and returning to the community at all times. Understanding motivations for offending can assist professionals to work more effectively with them. This course enables participants to take a proactive and safe approach to effectively supporting sex offenders in the community. The session covers the following: attitudes and beliefs, motivations and desistance theories. What is sexual offending? How do we work with sex offenders: dilemmas, boundaries, health and safety. We will also cover the importance of risk management, the criminal justice system and working positively with sex offenders in the community in order to prevent further victims.
