The identification and monitoring of criminogenic needs is key to case planning and management for sexual offenders. The Sex Offender Treatment Intervention and Progress Scale (SOTIPS) is a dynamic measure used to assess risk, treatment and supervision needs, and progress among adult male sexual offenders. Increasingly used in community and residential (including civil commitment) settings, the SOTIPS is designed for use by trained mental health professionals and probation and parole officers. Ideally, the SOTIPS should be used in combination with a static risk assessment tool such as the Static-99R (www.gifrinc.com/static-99r) or the VASOR-2 (www.gifrinc.com/vasor-2). Presented by the instrument’s lead developer, this workshop will train you in the use of the SOTIPS while earning 8 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the SOTIPS will be discussed, item-by-item instructions will be given on how to reliably score the measure and interpret its findings, a review of the peer-reviewed research on the SOTIPS will be provided, and guidance will be put forth on how to apply SOTIPS reporting conventions. Case studies will be employed to allow you to practice using the tool’s coding manual and to learn to avoid common administration errors.
More cost-effective and time-efficient than attending an in-person workshop but covering the same content, this innovative Live Webinar Training is the first-of-its-kind.
