Event Time: 9.30am to 4pm

This lecture explores the static and dynamic risk factors which are predictive of sexual offending. It will also consider different methods of managing risk, including identification of risk assessment tools for measuring likelihood of sexual re-offending and level harm, and the interplay between risk management measures from external sources and within the individual.
At the end of the lecture participants will be able to:
- Recognise risk factors for sexual offending and identify these in practice situations
- Consider the meaning and impact of a designation of low, medium, high or very high risk of sexual re-offending in a range of contexts
- Understand the importance of a targeted combination of internal and external measures to manage risk when seeking to reduce sexual recidivism.
