2PS is organising a workshop on 22 January 2024 for assessing support services for people at risk of committing CSAE.
The main goal is to discuss the current effectiveness of national and local policies and assess together the success and efficacy of existing risk assessment tools, treatment and support programs for people at risk of committing CSAE.
How you will contribute to assess support services for people at risk of committing CSAE
The workshop aims at reflecting on the two key strands of providing services to people at risk of committing a sexual offense: practice and policy.
Indeed, the workshop will represent a chance to think of ethical challenges and potential risks related to practice and about a potential risk safety plan that can exist locally, nationally and transnationally.
Specifically, participants will be fundamental for identifying needs and challenges of national and local policies, share best practices, and framing the interventions and the research by determining key performance indicators and measures of success.
