Supervision of the Sex Offender in a Virtual World: Richmond Parsons & Nicholas Honyara
COVID-19 has impacted us all greatly, both personally and professionally. Even though it is easy to concentrate on the negative, did it possibly redefine what we do and provided opportunities to enhance supervision and treatment after the pandemic?
This workshop will explore how virtual supervision and treatment can be used in addition to traditional in person interactions to enhance outcomes. The presenters will discuss the current research and will provide and demonstrate tips, tools, and techniques to improve virtual interaction. Officer will be able to increase the “dosage” of supervision while targeting criminogenic needs. Treatment providers will be able to increase the impact of treatment. Many of the techniques that are discussed can easily be applied across a variety of disciplines such as treatment providers and teachers. It is time that you take it to the next level.
Registration opens February 2022. More information coming soon.

August 5-7, 2020
At the first ever Zoom Idaho ATSA Conference, Rick and Nick presented their training on "The Next Generation: Management of the Sex Offender in the Digital World."
The most engaging topic centered around whether or not offenders should have access to the internet.
When surveyed, 100% of participants said they would recommend the topic and speakers to others.
Rick, a key presenter at the SAPEN Conference 2019, explored the arguments against the use of polygraph test in the treatment and supervision of sex offenders. His training session explored using a model on how the polygraph could be utilized to minimize the potential negative impact while improving treatment and supervision outcomes.
