Providing Training Through CSOM's Intensive Training Programs

Training Events

Those who bear responsibility for the disposition, release, and supervision of sex offenders must have information on effective strategies to manage this population. One of the primary goals of CSOM is to respond to the pressing need in the field for training. CSOM designs and delivers intensive training programs, in single and multi-disciplinary settings, to provide basic knowledge to practitioners in the sex offender management field and to highlight the critical need for interagency collaboration in this work.

CSOM's training events focus on several key issues:

  • The roles that the criminal justice, treatment, and victim advocacy communities play in the case management process;
  • The importance of collaboration at the policy level and the case management process; and
  • The practical application of emerging research and best practice to those working directly with sex offenders.

Although federal funding has been available in previous years to support qualifying requests for training, at the present time no such resources are available. However, CSOM staff are available to respond to telephone inquiries and will offer referrals to information and other forms of assistance as they may be available. Beyond this, CSOM staff are able to provide assistance on a fee-for-service basis. Contact us for more information.

Training Curricula

CSOM has also developed a comprehensive set of training curricula that address sex offender supervision, treatment, assessment, and other management issues. These curricula represent the first comprehensive, written, stand-alone set of materials on these topics and are available to jurisdictions nationwide for download on the CSOM web site (see the Training Curricula Home Page)
