Supervising individuals who have sexually offended is an essential element of a comprehensive approach to reducing and preventing sexual violence. Such supervision strategies must be evidence-informed, collaborative, and responsive to survivors’ rights, needs, and interests. The Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) and the Resource Sharing Project (RSP), with support from the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), have embarked on a partnership aimed at increasing understanding and practical application of a victim-centered approach to supervising these individuals. As part of the initiative, this webinar series is designed to address a variety of information needs identified by victim advocates and supervision officers, but other stakeholders with an interest in learning about these issues are welcome to participate.
