Online Training Description:

This training will provide an overview of the Circles of Support & Accountability (CoSA) model of community supervision and management of persons who have sexually abused. It provides a review of what does and doesn’t work in the implementation of this model. It offers critiques of other supervision and management approaches as well as an examination of how people desist from criminal behavior. Dr. Wilson will then discuss what is needed to begin implementing CoSAs. Finally, he will explore why CoSAs work and summarize the extant research on their effectiveness.

Circles of Support & Accountability (CoSA) is a restorative justice-informed initiative intended to assist in the post-release community integration of persons with sexual offense histories after long periods of incarceration or other detention. Typically focused on high-risk, high-need individuals, it employs community volunteers trained and supported by local professionals and experts. The model emerged in the 1990s in Canada during a time when some individuals at particularly high-risk to reoffend sexually were being released with no formal aftercare plans. Since its inception, CoSA has been consistently shown to significantly reduce harm while increasing the likelihood of successful integration of participants into the community. Based on a small but rather encouraging research base, the CoSA model has flourished in international jurisdictions, including Canada, USA, Great Britain, Europe, and Oceania, with more projects emerging every year.
