In the current political and economic environment it is more difficult than ever for sex offenders and other felons to re-enter their communities. This workshop will describe the effects of re-entry on this population and suggest ideas on how to assist them in successfully transitioning back to their communities.
At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:
1. Site research studies showing the impacts of registration law on sex offenders
2. Understand the impact of employment, housing and other issues on the successful treatment and re-integration of sex offenders
3. Assist clients in developing safety plans that allow for basic needs to be met and high risks to be avoided
