January 2019 NEARI Press Webinar

Title: Navigating rapport building and the therapeutic relationship with culturally diverse clients and their families

Presenter: Alejandro Leguizamo, Ph.D.

Date: January 15, 2019

time: 3 – 4 p.m. EST

Alejandro Leguizamo - Head Shot

Dr. Leguizamo is a psychologist currently on the faculty at Roger Williams University. He was previously the Clinical Director of the Sex Offender Treatment Program at the Massachusetts Treatment Center. For the past two decades, he has been researching, treating, and evaluating adult and juvenile sex offenders. He has also presented research and conducted training workshops in regional and national conferences.

 

Webinar Description: This webinar explores how sex offender treatment providers can maximize juveniles’ participation in treatment by engaging them, and their families, in culturally-informed ways. Forging a strong therapeutic relationship with clients is the cornerstone of change. In an era of manualized treatment, the development and maintenance of a therapeutic bond is often overlooked and can lead to mixed or superficial engagement in treatment. Navigating these complex relationships requires openness, flexibility, and humility. Moreover, clinicians need to be prepared to deal effectively with the inevitable disruptions in these relationships.

 

Learning Objectives:
Participants will:
1. Be able to identify the different therapist characteristics that maximize the development and maintenance of a strong therapeutic alliance.
2. Be able to identify specific benefits of a strong therapeutic alliance.
3. Be able to state how to identify their own cultural biases, become more mindful of microaggressions, and what to do in case of ruptures in the therapeutic relationship.

Webinar: Passport to Independence: Responsive Treatment Options for Persons Who Have Sexually Offended

Presented by: Robin J. Wilson, Ph.D., ABPP; Michele K. Burns, B.Sc.;
Erin Bresee, B.A.; Marshalee M. McQueen, B.A.
Date: October 9, 2018
Cosponsored with NEARI PRESS

Webinar Description:

Most Western treatment programs for persons who have sexually offended are underpinned by the Andrews and Bonta Risk-Need-Responsivity model, which states that interventions are more likely to succeed when treatment intensity is matched to level of assessed risk and when individual criminogenic needs are targeted in a manner that appreciates client motivation, learning style and abilities, and other idiosyncratic elements. For more than 30 years, Peel Behavioural Services has provided community based treatment and case management for persons with intellectual and other cognitive difficulties who have engaged in sexually inappropriate conduct. Passport to Independence is a collection of exercises focusing on the 10 life goals outlined in the popular Good Lives model. This book can either be used independently or as a group curriculum. A particular benefit of Passport to Independence is the manner in which the exercises were created. Together with our clients in treatment, we devised each exercise, practiced it in group and, with feedback from clients, made adjustments as suggested by our collective experience in order to ensure that the lessons made sense and were helpful to our clients in treatment. To our knowledge, no other currently available treatment curriculum was created with this much client involvement, and subsequent buy-in.

Speaker Bios:

Robin Wilson is a board certified clinical psychologist with more than 30 years’ experience in sexual violence prevention. He has worked in hospital, correctional, and community settings and is particularly interested in dynamic risk management. A good part of Dr. Wilson’s practice centers on working with clients with intellectual disabilities and problematic sexual behavior.

robin

Michele Burns has been working for Peel Behavioral Service for the past 30 years. During this time she has worked with a variety of individuals along with their mediators in addressing the behavioral challenges that they face. For the past 25 years her focus has been working with individuals with intellectual disabilities who engage in sexually offending behavior. She supervises the treatment program provided to three 24/7 homes along with a community sexuality program. She is the co-author of the guidebook—Intellectual Disability and problems in Sexual Behavior.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will learn to:

1. explain the importance of the Responsivity Principle in treatment for persons with
sexual behavior problems.
2. Describe a model of collaborative program development, ensuring client buy-in.
3. State the benefits of a framework in which treatment providers and clients
demonstrate reciprocal respect and therapeutic engagement.

We will focus on treatment decision making with a particular focus on prioritization of treatment needs among children presenting with co-occurring symptoms.
