This webinar will provide a short but essential overview of adults who have been convicted of a sex offense. In this 90-minute webinar, David Prescott will offer an overview of the population, describe adult sex offender assessment, treatment and supervision, and cover special topics such as juveniles, females, and those who view sexually explicit media involving child sexual abuse imagery.


At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Assess sexual offenders’ dangerousness
  • Understand effective means for reducing risk in the community
  • Understand different types of sexual offenders and how their offenses can “cross over” from one type to another
  • Identify key targets in making treatment programs as effective as possible
