PRESENTATION:  Join us in this six-hour class as we address some of the issues you might encounter when working with opioid mis-use if you come across an individual who is also a convicted sexual offender.  We will cover who sex offenders are, what’s the same and what’s different in working with this population.  We will discuss what has changed with evidence-based practice. We will cover different types of sex offenders, various paraphilias and how they impact individuals with whom you may interact.  We’ll talk about how supervision and treatment of these folks has changed and why. We will cover self-care and “grooming” including where appropriate boundaries may be different with this population.  We will discuss some real-life case studies and brain storm how to approach their care, and ours. And we’ll maybe even laugh a little, because this stuff can get a little bit dark, so we’ll lighten it up where we can.

PRESENTER:  Natalie Travers is a retired Chief Probation Officer from Connecticut.  She worked for over 21 years for the Connecticut Judicial Branch, and has been working in criminal justice since 1992.  Over the course of her career, she was a sexual assault crisis counselor, a counselor trainer, a case manager, a probation officer, a motivational interviewing (MINT) trainer, and a chief probation officer responsible for the probation units supervising both the WOCM (Women Offender Case Management) and the Sex Offender Units of New Britain Adult Supervision. Her field of expertise includes the supervision of sexual offenders in the community and working with the providers who treat them.
