Adult Sex Offenders
This intensive program is designed on the most recent best practices of the profession. The SCCT leadership team have been members of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers and the Georgia chapter for many years. They are committed to the ethical guidelines and adhere to the core principles. Great care is given to the proper execution of treatment to enhance the possibility of long-term relapse prevention. The SCCT program is innovative. Clients are encouraged to form a relapse prevention team (a network of supporters) to assist in his or her recovery and further reduce recidivism. Chaperone training is available to close family members and/or friends to assist in day-to-day transactions. Our goal is safety for the community.
THERE IS NO CURE, THERE IS ONLY CONTROL!
Adolescents who Sexually Offend and Children with Sexual Behavior Problems
There is a critical need in our communities to help children who molest other children. Our world and theirs have been sexualized in almost every imaginable way. Who do we blame? Blame cannot heal.
Accepting responsibility and working through the issues can make a tremendous difference in the life of a child and his or her family.
Care, sensitivity, and skill in the child’s therapeutic treatment make up the cornerstone to changing inappropriate thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Additionally, the therapists at SCCT work with parents and caregivers in building safe environments and safety plans to deter sexual aggression.
Children (12 and younger) with sexual behavior problems are a very rare group of people. However, the SCCT staff is capable and willing to treat and support this very delicate population. Using traditional cognitive behavioral techniques as well as play therapy, children and their parents are taught to control these inappropriate behaviors and to replace them with socially acceptable behaviors.
Our therapists and staff educate family members on the client’s treatment goals and needs. Family members are also assisted in learning about their own emotional needs and supports.
This program is particularly important for families of children and adolescents who commit sexually inappropriate acts. Sometimes families are in denial about their child’s sexual behaviors. This program will shed a light upon issues many times overlooked by parents and caregivers of children who sexually act out. It is also important for family members to help with transgenerational concerns related to sexual abuse.
SCCT provides services for victims of sexual abuse crimes. Sensitivity and sensibility are combined with the clinical skills to aid victims to move on with their lives
