Understanding Sex Offenders & Decision Making in Child Sex Abuse Cases

Many of our current child welfare practices and family reunification policies are being challenged by new information about “cross-over” sexual crimes among sex offenders, “re-offense” vs. “recidivism” rates, expected treatment outcomes and long-term risk management.  An introduction to understanding sex offenders will be presented and the remainder of the training will focus on the difficult decision making process in child sex abuse cases. This presentation will provide participants with a review of recent findings as they relate to family decision making, contact between sex offenders and children and family reunification.   Recommendations for “case by case classification” and case planning (based on empirically based risk assessment) will be outlined.
