This training session will focus on the importance of creating and maintaining safe, supportive, and person centered environments when working with individuals who have histories of high risk behaviors such as severe aggression, sexual offending or fire setting. In order to be effective in helping these individuals transition to fuller, richer lives, several special skills are needed including a proper mindset, proficiency in the 12 essential skills of supervision, and a thorough understanding of the individuals being supported. The challenge is to create an environment that is both person centered and also safe for the person being supported, other individuals in the program, the staff supporting the individual and the public. This training will focus on the skills and abilities needed to assist these individuals on their journey towards better, more fulfilling lives.
