Many juvenile sex offenders will return home after treatment. Reunification with their family poses many clinical issues for the offender, family and victim. Treatment providers for the offender and victim must work together to make this transition safe and successful. This workshop will focus on family reunification when the victim is a family member. Reunification of the family, offender and victim should be approached with great caution. A plan must be set forth with the treatment providers and family to ensure continuity. The treatment providers must ensure emotional and physical safety concerns are addressed. Written protocols allow the treatment provider, family and court a clear picture of the process.
