  • A Prison-based Treatment Program aimed at Preventing Civil Commitment, with Sue Persons, MS. MnAtsa Conference, Brooklyn Park, MN, April 15, 2010  
    Abstract:
    MSOP (Minnesota’s civil commitment program) provides treatment to inmates at MCF-Moose Lake with the hope of preventing civil commitment. This is unique among civil commitment programs. This workshop describes current practice in this setting with the hope that it is useful to other programs. Key elements include discussion around how the staff members come together as a team, and how the offendres come together as a community to maintain the best possible circumstances for change.

     

  • Denial and the Sex Offender: Research, Myths, Implications, and Practice, MATSA Conference, Marlborough, MA, April 9, 2010
    Abstract: How is it that this issue arouses such strong emotion among professionals? Is denial a risk factor or not? Can we treatment people in denial? And more difficult still, should we? For that matter, how did denial come to be such a hotly debated topic? What message does our field send by treating deniers? How does this help or harm those affected by sexual abuse? This panel discussion, facilitated by David Prescott, will examine the controversies and make recommendations. Caution: The controversies in this topic are virtually guaranteed well into the future.
