EXPLORING THE IMPLICATIONS OF SURVIVORS’ PERSPECTIVES OF MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS FOR INDIVIDUALS CONVICTED OF SEX OFFENCES
Associate Professor Kelly Richards, Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
Dr Jodi Death, Senior Lecturer, Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
Carol Ronken, Director of Research, Bravehearts, AustraliaIN
As part of an Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) funded evaluation of two reintegration programs for individuals convicted of sex offences. This presentation explores the views of survivors of sexual violence to the reintegration of those convicted of sex offences into the community.
From interviews with survivors, three key findings emerged: (1) The needs of those convicted of sexual offences are intertwined with the needs of victim/survivors and communities more broadly; (2) Survivor views about reintegration are intertwined with views about the related concepts of accountability and treatability; and (3) Survivor views about reintegration are largely instrumental and prospective.
This presentation will discuss the interview data in relation to acknowledging the needs of survivors in the design of intervention programs and the inclusion of the voices of survivors in advocating for evidence-based programs to prevent reoffending by individuals convicted of sex offences.
Thursday 17th September - 12.00 - 1.30pm

FEMALE-PERPETRATED CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IN ORGANISATIONAL SETTINGS
Dr. Andrea Darling, Department of Sociology, Durham University
Professor Simon Hackett, Deputy Provost & Professor of Child Abuse and Neglect, Durham University
The presentation will discuss our research into female-perpetrated child sexual abuse in organisational settings. It will describe perpetrator and victim characteristics and focus on our findings concerning why and how this specific type of abuse occurs considering potential motivations, risk factors and offence processes. Implications for policy and practice and potential areas for future research will also be discussed which will hopefully be of particular interest to NOTA members and other attendees working with perpetrators and victims and survivors of child sexual abuse.
