|This workshop is for individuals exposed to child sexual abuse images and mental health professionals working with them. |
Team taught by a mental health professional and a law enforcement officer, this course offers professionals who are exposed to child sexual abuse images at work and who may interact often with child sex offenders (e.g., law enforcement officers, forensic analysts, prosecutors, etc.), the opportunity to learn about the causes and symptoms of the negative effects that may occur as a result of their duties and ways to mitigate them.
Mental health professionals learn about the challenges faced by professionals exposed to child pornography and other operations involving child sex offenders.
The course also will provide mental health professionals with tools to help exposed individuals.
