Incorporated in 1984, the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers is a non-profit, interdisciplinary organization. ATSA was founded to foster research, facilitate information exchange, further professional education and provide for the advancement of professional standards and practices in the field of sex offender evaluation and treatment.
For over 20 years, NEARI Press has been providing nationally recognized “cutting edge” work with seriously emotionally disturbed children and youth as well as providing “state of the art” resources about sexual abuse prevention. Since NEARI's inception, we have served as a source of practical, cutting-edge information for professionals and the public about promising and best-practice interventions with those who sexually abuse or display sexual behavior problems. In our rapidly changing field, NEARI Press strives to bring you the best thinking to guide your work with at-risk children, youth and adults. As a nonprofit organization our mission is to ensure that the professionals working with these target populations have access to the best information, training, and skill building opportunities available.
The Center for Sex Offender Management’s primary goal is to enhance public safety by preventing further victimization through improving the management of sex offenders in the community. CSOM provides the most current information and effective practices to those responsible for managing sex offenders; captures lessons from communities around the country who have demonstrated — through collaboration between criminal justice and health system agencies — that they can manage sex offenders and increase public safety; disseminates those lessons; and provides the opportunity for other jurisdictions to draw upon these experiences, enhance their practices, and create similar results by offering a variety of technical assistance opportunities.
STOP IT NOW!, a national nonprofit organization, created a ground-breaking public health approach to prevent the perpetration of child sexual abuse. Since 1992, Stop It Now!’s public policy, public education, and research programs have protected our children by emphasizing adult and community responsibility. These programs reach out to adults who are concerned about inappropriate sexualized behavior in another adult, adolescent, or child, and to adults who are concerned about their own thoughts or behaviors. Stop It Now! established the first helpline (1-888-PREVENT) available for individuals and families to call for support and access to resources in a confidential setting.
