The Good Lives Model (GLM) is a leading strengths-based rehabilitative framework within sexual offender treatment. Focused on the development and implementation of meaningful life plans that mitigate the likelihood of recidivism, the Good Lives Model has been found to enhance client engagement in treatment and reduce dropouts from treatment programs. This comprehensive workshop reviews the key underlying principles of the Good Lives Model as well as integration strategies from a practitioner perspective. The identification of primary human goods and common life goals will be explored, the four principal flaws to a client’s Good Life Plan will be identified, the creation of Approach Goals will be discussed, and how typical programming targeting dynamic risk factors can be designed following a Good Lives Model Approach. This workshop is suitable for treatment providers and program administrators working in correctional, civil commitment, and community-based settings with either adolescent or adult clients. We hope you will join us for this unique training experience!
