“The goal of sex offender management is to promote public safety by reducing the risk of recidivism among sex offenders.”*
Toward this important end, a new approach to sex offender treatment and management has been emerging over the past decade. Called the Good Lives Model, it aims to focus the offender on achieving healthy, pro-social goals, rather than merely avoiding negative behavior.
As empirical evidence suggests this good lives approach is a more effective treatment model, interest has grown in applying it to management of sex offenders (and, indeed, to other types of offenders).
To help probation officers, parole officers and case managers integrate this promising approach into their work, Safer Society Press is happy to offer the following resources (click the links for more information):
- Applying the Good Lives Model to the Case Management of Sexual Offenders
- Making a Better Life Happen – a video-taped workshop
