The most effective way to prevent further sexual violence is to hold the offender responsible for learning adaptive ways to manage and regulate his emotional triggers and behavior without victimizing others. We work with his strengths and focus on his unique pattern of risk factors to build skills to overcome risk and achieve self regulation. We believe this to be an essential component of any effective sex offender management program.
This goal is best achieved through therapy where each individual can be supported while being held accountable for making needed changes and gaining self control. We have collected and developed treatment tools and techniques included in our RULE program to treat these deficits and we have learned to avoid the pitfalls that the private practitioner experiences when trying to treat sex offenders.
Over the years, our talented staff has developed treatment guides and workbooks for our clients use. We have now integrated these tools into a comprehensive software program we call A+. A+ streamlines the assessment and individualized treatment planning process as well as the session documentation, monthly reporting fro criminal justice agents and filing in the clients electronic health record. This vast data base on our 4000 active clients allows us and our colleagues a rare opportunity to validate and standardize assessment tools and refine treatment interventions.
In pursuit of our mission to reduce the risk of sexual violence we are committed to working with Probation and Parole, Corrections, and Victim Advocates in multi-disciplinary teams as the most successful approach. The scope of our services include:
