How can we respond to known sexual offenders?
About this Session
In this video training session, Matt from TDI answers the question 'How can we respond to known sexual offenders?'. We talk about the things we can do as support workers whose role is not the management of offending behaviour to have positive impacts on offenders, we discuss effective listening and how to achieve it, we outline the 'Stages of Change' model of behavioural change to help us guide offenders in altering unhealthy behaviours, we introduce the idea of professional dangerousness and its impact on our jobs, and finally we talk a little about our duty of care.
This video is accompanied by an exercise, 'Listening and being listened to', which is available alongside the video.
This session builds on the TDI Explainer of the same name, which may be a good place to start for those who are coming to this topic completely fresh.
