Descriptive vs. Prescriptive Information

One of CSOM’s primary responsibilities is to facilitate information exchanges among the stakeholders involved in sex offender management. This curriculum draws heavily upon the practical experiences of individuals who are involved in the management of sex offenders and/or the delivery of services to victims of sexual assault, and attempts to strike a balance between simply describing a range of practices on the one hand and, on the other, articulating what seems to be emerging as effective practice based upon the existing research. This curriculum has been designed to provide trainers with as much information as possible so that they can make informed decisions regarding how they broach the material with their live audiences.
