Paraphilias: Shades of Grey, Black or Red ?

18th April 2024 1pm – 4pm via MS Teams

Assessing sexual abusive behaviour is fundamentally about gaining insight into an individual’s sexual interests and why they have chosen to have their sexual gratification in the manner in which has caused harm to others. However, as practitioners, whether in our interviewing of victims or the person of concern, we need to seek to look beyond the actions of body parts alone.

NOTA Individualised Treatment Programme (NITP)

24th and 25th June 2024

MILL HILL CHAPEL, 9 LOWER BASINGHALL STREET, LEEDS LS1 5EB

The NITP is a ‘one to one’ intervention designed for men who are at risk of committing sexual abuse (previously convicted or not), contact or non contact, including via the internet. It is centred on best practice & current evidence, having been widely peer reviewed.  It is motivational and strengths based centred on a collaborative formulation  of the client’s individual risk & needs. In addition to strongly evidenced risk factors (sexual interests, attitudes, relationships and self management) the Programme aims to promote a better life and relapse prevention skills. The effects of trauma on risk and responsivity are accommodated. Advice is given on broader interventions (e.g. schema therapy). Diversity issues are addressed although clients with significant cognitive limitations may require other specialist input. It does not specifically address the needs of men who categorically deny their offences.
