Understanding Sex Offenders & Decision Making in Child Sex Abuse Cases

Fall 2017 Training

Brought to you by the Southwest Regional Training Center at New Mexico State University

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.  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) are outlined.
