The conference will be held April 22-24, 2015 at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. We’re excited to have keynotes with Kevin Creeden discussing trauma informed care; Laura Rademacher discussing sexually explicit material; and Ogi Ogas, co-author of “A Billion Wicked Thoughts”, on what internet searches can tell us about human sexuality. Full day pre-con presenters on April 22 will be Kevin Creeden on a developmental treatment approach for youth with sexual behavior problems; Laura Rademacher on positive sexuality; Sue Krautkramer on vulnerability, courage, and shame; and a presentation on Sex Trafficking. The Stable/Acute certification will be offered again, but limited to 40 participants. There will be an extra $60 fee for this certification to cover the added expenses. Half-day presentation topics include ethics, a psychologist’s panel on testifying, trauma & mindfulness, practical use of the polygraph, trauma and hosting conversations, how agents can better promote positive offender change, the treatment of psychopathy, and the integrated model of treatment.
