The Trainer Training: Primary, Secondary & Tertiary Prevention of Abusive and Sexual Behavior Problems In Childhood and Adolescence
After 30 years at the Kempe Center, studying the concept of ‘Perpetration Prevention’ to learn why people become abusive and how we might reduce the risk of kids becoming abusive and continuing that behavior across the lifespan, the trainer training uses a 4 part curriculum to expedite the sharing of information across communities. Within that curriculum is information relevant for virtually every adult involved in children’s’ lives from birth to adulthood. professionals, paraprofessionals, parents and alternative care providers learn strategies aimed to help kids be successful at the same time we insist they not be abusive. The curriculum has been used to train groups of trainers in 20 states, as well as dozens of individuals who have come to Denver to be trained.
The Certificate Class: “Treatment of Sexually Abusive Youth: A Goal Oriented Approach”
October 30-November 4, 2017
The certificate course is designed for clinicians and program directors who work with juveniles who have already been abusive to others. Such courses have been taught in a variety of settings since the early 1990’s, now using the 3rd Edition of the textbook: Juvenile Sexual Offending: Causes Consequences and Correction (2010) Ryan, Leversee & Lane. In academic tradition, class participants are required to do pre-reading, receive 40 contact hours in class and are tested for comprehension and retention in order to receive the certificate. In small classes, it provides an intensive learning experience for newcomers as well as seasoned clinicians.
