It is well understood that many people who become physically or sexually abusive have a history of themselves being abuse victims, often during childhood. This workshop will clarify the relationship between suffering abuse in childhood and becoming an abuser. Cognitive distortions that are typical within the sex offender population will be discussed, including specific case examples of offenders who were abused in childhood. Participants will learn to set treatment goals important for addressing both the abuse and abuser issues that may present within the same client. Class size is limited to 50.
