in The Community:
An Overview of The Training
3 hours, 45 minutes
|LEARNING ACTIVITY: CASE STUDY|
Read the Case Study provided in the participant materials
and respond to the questions in Section 1, Exercise 2:
Refer to Handout: Refer to Case Study
and Section 1, Exercise 2: Case Study Questions.
The trainer may want to introduce the Case
Study here or in Section 2. The first questions
are very general and can provide the basis
for some neutral discussion of experience
and expectations. The Case Study and Section
1 questions can also be assigned for review
outside of class. This can give participants
an opportunity to review the case more thoroughly
before getting into the more challenging
questions in Sections 2 and 3.
- Are Mike's instant offenses and his background similar
to any of the offenders that you have supervised?
What are the unique supervision challenges associated
with sex offenders who have profiles similar to Mike's?
- Have you also supervised sex offenders who possess
more stable social, educational, and family backgrounds
than Mike? Are there particular challenges associated
with supervising sex offenders who seem to have very
prosocial lifestyles (e.g., those who are consistently
employed, live with their families, have advanced
academic backgrounds, etc.)?
Note: The trainer may want to inform
participants when the next training section(s)
will be covered, who should attend, and
what materials they should cover before
the next session.
