Cultural Sensitivity Working with Juvenile Sex Offenders and their Families

January 16, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

DescriptionThis 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. Moreover, support from youths’ families, along with other systems, can be essential for long-term change. This webinar will provide participants with a framework used to provide culturally-sensitive treatment.

Learning Objectives: 

Participants will:

  1. Be able to identify the various ecological systems in which clients, their families, and ourselves develop, exist, and function.
  2. Be able to describe the three multicultural competencies developed by Sue and Sue.
  3. Be able to identify how to apply the above concepts to specific cases.
