Successfully envisioning a life free of violence and sexual harm requires significant effort on the part of youth who have caused sexual harm, their families, victims, service providers, and communities at large. This presentation focuses on challenges of engaging families in this process, particularly when these families include members who have caused sexual harm, and those who have been abused. An empirically-based trauma-informed framework utilizes Motivational Interviewing to engage and enhance change promoting life-long health and well-being.

Attendees will be better able to:
1. Clarify understanding of therapeutic engagement
2. Recognize obstacles to effective family engagement and strategies for overcoming them
3. Identify core components of family focused treatment across a full continuum of care, and
benefits of practicing them
4. Facilitate neuroscience-based activities to teach and promote self-regulation for all family
5. Identify how foundational tenets of Motivational Interviewing enhance engagement, promote
autonomy, and create a values-based intervention that honors both individual and family
6. Use medically accurate sexual health information to promote harm-free sex
