People who have been convicted of sex crimes and are mandated to treatment often present with complex clinical and ethical challenges. Treating those who categorically deny having committed the sex crime for which they have been convicted can be particularly challenging. The Rockwood program in Ontario developed and implemented a model approach to engaging these individuals.
In this training, Dr. Liam Marshall will describe the Rockwood program for treating people who categorically deny offending. He will describe the model itself and the qualities of professionals who are most effective in implementing it. He will offer practical advice and describe the challenges that professionals face in its implementation.
As a result of attending this training, attendees will be better able to:
1) Identify common reasons why people deny crimes that they have, in fact, committed.
2) Distinguish between the four qualities of effective professionals who provide treatment to these individuals.
3) Explain the factors that increase the risk that a person will be subject to further allegations of abuse.
4) Plan and implement treatment exercises that will increase the likelihood that the client will more fully participate in treatment.
