Two Day Event: Thursday, November 29 and Friday, November 30, 2018
Sex Offenders and Victims: Current Trends will focus on current developments in work with sex offenders and victims of sexual offenses. Some topics to be addressed include acquaintance sex offenses, counter-intuitive victim behavior, assessment and treatment of offenders, as well as deceptions and denial. The training will include reflections on Alaska Native cultural considerations in work with victims and offenders.
Day One: Will begin by exploring dynamics of acquaintance rape and other sexual offenses committed by someone known to the victim. Counter intuitive victim behavior and implications will be addressed. Sex offender typology will be presented, including discussion of psychopathy. Estimates suggest that juvenile sex offenders commit between 1/3 and ½ of all child molestations. The types of juvenile offenders will be discussed along with current methods of assessing their risk. Alaska Native cultural reflections will be shared by Rev. Anna Frank.
Day Two: Current trends in sex offender assessment and treatment that reduces offending will be reviewed. The training will look at reliable methods of detecting deception. Many methods suggested by conventional wisdom are not accurate and those that are more accurate are lesser known. The dynamics of delayed disclosure will be presented. Finally, the general literature on suggestibility is often used in court to discount the reports of children. This section will look at which research is applicable to child sexual abuse cases and which cannot be fairly applied. Alaska Native cultural reflections will be shared by Rev. Anna Frank.
