Treating "Monsters": How to Work with Minor Attracted Persons in a Clinical Setting
Description: There is a lack of preventative treatment or support for those living with pedophilic desires; many of us as health care professionals will not even work with this population. The dearth of support and services offered for minor attracted adults only further puts our community and our children at risk. Join me in a conversation about how to work with minor attracted clients so we can take preventative measures to support everyone in our communities and give this stigmatized population a fighting chance.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: challenge, confront, recognize, and voice their own individual and occupational biases towards minor attracted persons; compare strategies and research about the support and treatment of MAPs.
