Looking at the Assessment of Sex Offenders (DVD)

This educational DVD has been designed to be part of the training of professionals who work with sex offenders. The DVD contains demonstrations of clinical interviews, with experienced mental health staff as the interviewers and actors, experienced in working with sex offenders, playing the role of the offenders themselves. The interview material is supported by a discussion group of experienced psychologists and psychiatrists, who highlight aspects of good practice in professional work with sex offenders during the assessment process.
 
The DVD has been designed so that it can be used on a standalone basis or, by using the scene selection facility, as supporting material for other educational programmes. It is designed to be suitable for both individual study and viewing in a group.
 
The film is of interest to both forensic psychiatrists and psychologists who already work with sex offenders and those who do not, in addition, it is suitable for other mental health professionals including social workers and nurses. It also has great relevance for probation officers and other professionals who work within the criminal justice system.

“An excellent teaching aid that brings the clinical techniques and context of assessment to life in a way that cannot be matched in a book. …A very watchable, informative and real discussion of the issues in assessment of sex offenders, focussing particularly on clinical technique and problem-solving. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to beginners and experienced practitioners alike.”
