Coursework designed to provide a solid theoretical framework and practical skills for goal-oriented intervention strategies in the management and treatment of sexually abusive youth.  A developmental-contextual approach is stressed which emphasizes growth and development as the vehicle for offense specific change.  Designed for practicing counselors and clinicians, the course builds on traditional diagnostic and counseling theory to address a uniquely troubled and troubling client population.  Counselors new to this subspecialty will benefit from the instructor’s 30 years experience in research and practice with sexually abusive youth, while experienced specialists will be challenged to re-examine and articulate their beliefs about the work they are doing and become aware of new developments in the field.  The struggles and dynamics of the treatment process are illustrated through the use of videotaped group sessions involving 11-17 year old males.  The implications of the coursework in evaluation and treatment of Younger children at risk or exhibiting abusive behaviors are discussed. Participants are required to complete approximately 40 hours of reading prior to arriving on site for the course and will receive 40 hours of instruction over a 6 day course.  Documentation of continuing education hours will be available on the basis of participation and comprehension measured by exams.  A certificate of completion is awarded to successful participants.  Application is required.
