Working with Sex Offenders

99,609 sexual offences were reported last year, the highest since national records began in 2002, and there has been a 60% increase in reported child sexual abuse in the last 5 years. People committed of sexual offences are living in and returning to our community at all times. Understanding motivations for offending can assist professionals to work more effectively with them.


It is also very important when communicating and engaging with convicted sex offenders that workers remain safe from manipulation, misuse of power and controlling aspects. They must remain professional and objective and strive for a balance between working with facts without prejudice and not overly empathising with the perpetrator.


Working with perpetrators to help them move away from offending can be challenging. This course ensures that delegates leave with a good understanding of motivations, desistance theory, how to keep themselves safe and how to navigate the Criminal Justice System.
