We offer these webinars as a free educational opportunity for our NEARI Press customers and those who care deeply about this work. However, we would not be able to do this important work without our sponsors and donors.


As a small non-profit organization, we rely on subscribers to help support our webinar work. Please consider becoming a sponsor of NEARI Press and Training Center's exciting new 2017-2018 webinar series. For those who can support us through a subscription, we will send you two of NEARI Press's popular titles:  Current Applications and Current Perspectives (other titles if you have subscribed last year!) with a value of $149 and we guarantee a seat at each webinar for the 2017-2018 season. A great deal! Sponsorship is $98 for individuals and $250 for organizations.  If you regularly attend please consider becoming a sponsor.

We believe that given a chance to hear an author speak about his or her work through our webinars, you, the listener will have the chance to “preview the book” and have the opportunity to learn so much more by combining both online and offline learning.

Cultural Sensitivity Working with Juvenile Sex Offenders and their Families

E-mail Print

Presenter:  Alejandro Leguizamo, Ph.D.

Date: Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

Description: This webinar explores how sex offender treatment providers can maximize juveniles’ participation in treatment by engaging them, and their families, in culturally-informed ways. Forging a strong therapeutic relationship with clients is the cornerstone of change. In an era of manualized treatment, the development and maintenance of a therapeutic bond is often overlooked and can lead to mixed or superficial engagement in treatment. Moreover, support from youths’ families, along with other systems, can be essential for long-term change. This webinar will provide participants with a framework used to provide culturally-sensitive treatment.

Learning Objectives: Participants will:

1. Be able to identify the various ecological systems in which clients, their families, and ourselves develop, exist, and function.

2. Be able to describe the three multicultural competencies developed by Sue and Sue.

3. Be able to identify how to apply the above concepts to specific cases.

All activities in the book aim to support the family in building a common language to promote conversations that are safe, supportive, relationship-building, and "boundaryful."
