    Training Description:


    How to Score and Use the Sex Offender Treatment Intervention and Progress Scale (SOTIPS)

    (half-day morning)

    This half-day workshop focuses on using case studies to learn how to score and use the SOTIPS. The SOTIPS is a 16 item, provider-administered, dynamic measure designed to aid clinicians and probation and parole officers in assessing risk, treatment and supervision needs, and progress among adult males who have been convicted of committing a sexual offense. The theory and research support for the scale will be reviewed briefly as well. The workshop will include how to use the scale with a static risk measure such as the Static-99R and VASOR-2. 


    Conducting Child Contact Assessments Using the Risk of Sexual Abuse of Children (ROSAC)

    (half-day afternoon)

    Mental health, probation and parole, corrections, and child protective services professionals are commonly asked to assess the risk a sexual abuser poses to a particular child and under what circumstances, if any, the abuser might safely be allowed contact with the child. The Risk of Sexual Abuse of Children (ROSAC) uses a Structured Professional Judgment model for conducting these types of risk of sexual harm assessments. The ROSAC is composed of 30 items that are grouped into three categories; factors concerning the abuser, child at potential risk, and primary caregiver. This half-day workshop will review the theory and research basis for the ROSAC and focus on using case studies to assist participants in understanding how the instrument is used for making risk determinations and developing safety plans.
