Assessing and Treating Challenging Sexual Behavior
There is increasing recognition of the lack of resources and the need for supports for people with Intellectual Disabilities at risk of aberrant sexual expression. Offense specific treatment professionals with experience treating individuals with Intellectual Disabilities are in high demand and short supply. This webinar will focus on assessment and risk considerations of the individual. Development of effective assessment based safety and treatment interventions that can be implemented by support professionals in the community will be discussed. Case examples will illustrate a variety of ethical and biopsychosocial issues.

He is currently in private practice, devoting most of his professional time to the assessment and treatment of people with intellectual disabilities at risk of engaging in a variety of challenging behavior. Marc works closely with support staff and collaborates with staff and administrators in development and evaluation of therapeutic interventions. He consults with various public and private agencies and serves as expert witness.
