The Good Lives Model and People Who Sexually Abuse

 

 6 CE Credits, $99.99

The Good Lives Model (GLM) has become a popular approach to the treatment of people who sexually abuse; however, substantial variation has been observed in its practical application.  This six-hour workshop focuses on how programs and therapists can best integrate the GLM into treatment with persons who have sexually abused. It is suitable for treatment providers and program administrators working in prison, civil commitment, and community-based settings who wish to integrate the GLM.  Preliminary research suggests that, integrated appropriately, the GLM offers potential for improving outcomes of treatment programs that follow a cognitive-behavioral (CBT) approach and that operate according to the Risk, Need, and Responsivity (RNR) principles.  For example, research suggests that the GLM’s focus on engaging clients in the treatment process enhances treatment engagement, an important element of program effectiveness.  However, misguided or otherwise poor application of the GLM in practice could increase the very risk treatment is designed to prevent and manage.  The presenters have assisted programs around the world (for example, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Norway, North America, Germany, Italy, and Namibia) in integrating the GLM.
